Psalm 13 (WEBP)

[1] How long, Yahweh? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me?
[2] How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart every day? How long shall my enemy triumph over me?
[3] Behold, and answer me, Yahweh, my God. Give light to my eyes, lest I sleep in death;
[4] lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed against him;” lest my adversaries rejoice when I fall.
[5] But I trust in your loving kindness. My heart rejoices in your salvation.
[6] I will sing to Yahweh, because he has been good to me.
