Psalm 143 (WEBP)

[1] Hear my prayer, Yahweh. Listen to my petitions. In your faithfulness and righteousness, relieve me.
[2] Don’t enter into judgment with your servant, for in your sight no man living is righteous.
[3] For the enemy pursues my soul. He has struck my life down to the ground. He has made me live in dark places, as those who have been long dead.
[4] Therefore my spirit is overwhelmed within me. My heart within me is desolate.
[5] I remember the days of old. I meditate on all your doings. I contemplate the work of your hands.
[6] I spread out my hands to you. My soul thirsts for you, like a parched land. Selah.
[7] Hurry to answer me, Yahweh. My spirit fails. Don’t hide your face from me, so that I don’t become like those who go down into the pit.
[8] Cause me to hear your loving kindness in the morning, for I trust in you. Cause me to know the way in which I should walk, for I lift up my soul to you.
[9] Deliver me, Yahweh, from my enemies. I flee to you to hide me.
[10] Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. Your Spirit is good. Lead me in the land of uprightness.
[11] Revive me, Yahweh, for your name’s sake. In your righteousness, bring my soul out of trouble.
[12] In your loving kindness, cut off my enemies, and destroy all those who afflict my soul, for I am your servant.

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 143 (YLT)

[1] O Jehovah, hear my prayer, Give ear unto my supplications, In Thy faithfulness answer me-in Thy righteousness.
[2] And enter not into judgment with Thy servant, For no one living is justified before Thee.
[3] For an enemy hath pursued my soul, He hath bruised to the earth my life, He hath caused me to dwell in dark places, As the dead of old.
[4] And my spirit in me is become feeble, Within me is my heart become desolate.
[5] I have remembered days of old, I have meditated on all Thine acts, On the work of Thy hand I muse.
[6] I have spread forth my hands unto Thee, My soul is as a weary land for Thee. Selah.
[7] Haste, answer me, O Jehovah, My spirit hath been consumed, Hide not Thou Thy face from me, Or I have been compared with those going down to the pit.
[8] Cause me to hear in the morning Thy kindness, For in Thee I have trusted, Cause me to know the way that I go, For unto Thee I have lifted up my soul.
[9] Deliver me from mine enemies, O Jehovah, Near Thee I am covered.
[10] Teach me to do Thy good pleasure, For Thou art my God-Thy Spirit is good, Lead me into a land of uprightness.
[11] For Thy name’s sake O Jehovah, Thou dost quicken me, In Thy righteousness, Thou bringest out from distress my soul,
[12] And in Thy kindness cuttest off mine enemies, And hast destroyed all the adversaries of my soul, For I am Thy servant!
