Psalms 143

A psalm of David.
 1  Hear my prayer, O LORD;
  listen to my plea!
  Answer me because you are faithful and righteous.
 2  Don't put your servant on trial,
  for no one is innocent before you.
 3  My enemy has chased me.
  He has knocked me to the ground
  and forces me to live in darkness like those in the grave.
 4  I am losing all hope;
  I am paralyzed with fear.
 5  I remember the days of old.
  I ponder all your great works
  and think about what you have done.
 6  I lift my hands to you in prayer.
  I thirst for you as parched land thirsts for rain.    Interlude

 7  Come quickly, LORD, and answer me,
  for my depression deepens.
Don't turn away from me,
  or I will die.
 8  Let me hear of your unfailing love each morning, for I am trusting you. Show me where to walk, for I give myself to you.  9  Rescue me from my enemies, LORD;
  I run to you to hide me.
 10  Teach me to do your will,
  for you are my God.
May your gracious Spirit lead me forward
  on a firm footing.
 11  For the glory of your name, O LORD, preserve my life.
  Because of your faithfulness, bring me out of this distress.
 12  In your unfailing love, silence all my enemies
  and destroy all my foes,
  for I am your servant.
