10. Psalm 13- The deserted soul

How long, O Lord? Will You Forget me for ever? How long will You seem to Turn Your Face from me? How long must I bear pain in my soul and have sorrow in my heart all the day? How long shall my enemy seem to be exalted over me? Consider and Answer me, O Lord my God, Lighten my eyes, lest I would sleep the sleep of death, lest my enemy say: “I have prevailed over him”, yea lest my foes rejoice because I am shaken. But nay for I have trusted in Your Steadfast Love and my heart shall rejoice in Your Salvation! Yea I will praise You YHWH, because You Have Dealt Graciously with me.
