Tehilim Chapter 143

tehilim 143


1 A song of David. O Lord, hearken to my prayer, lend ear to my supplications; with Your faith, answer me with Your righteousness.
2 And do not come to judgment with Your servant, for no living being will be innocent before You.
3 For an enemy pursued my soul; he crushed my soul to the earth; he has made me dwell in dark places like those who are long dead.
4 And my spirit enwrapped itself upon me; within me my heart is appalled.
5 I remember the days of yore; I meditate over all Your works; I speak of the work of Your hands.
6 I spread out my hands to You; my heart is like a weary land to You forever.
7 Answer me quickly, O Lord, my spirit pines. Do not hide Your countenance from me, lest I be likened to those who descend into the pit.
8 Let me hear Your kindness in the morning, for I hope in You; let me know the way in which I am to go, for to You I have lifted up my soul.
9 Save me from my enemies, O Lord; to You I have hidden.
10 Teach me to do Your will for You are my God; may Your good spirit lead me in an even land.
11 For the sake of Your name, O Lord, revive me; with Your righteousness, deliver my soul from distress.
12 And with Your kindness, You shall cut off my enemies, and You shall destroy all the oppressors of my soul, for I am Your servant.
