A psalm, of Dawiḏ.
1 Hear my prayer, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄,
Give ear to my pleadings.
In Your trustworthiness,
Answer me in Your righteousness,
2 And do not enter into right-ruling with Your servant,
For before You no one living is in the right.
3 For the enemy has pursued my being;
He has crushed my life to the ground;
He has made me dwell in dark places,
Like the dead of old.
4 Therefore my spirit grew faint within me,
My heart within me is stunned.
5 I remembered the days of old;
I meditated on all Your works;
I ponder on the work of Your hands.
6 I have spread out my hands to You;
My being is like a thirsty land for You.
7 Hasten, answer me, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄;
My spirit fails!
Do not hide Your face from me,
Lest I be like those going down into the pit.
8 Let me hear Your kindness in the morning,
For in You I have put my trust;
Let me know the way in which I should walk,
For I have lifted up my being to You.
9 Deliver me from my enemies,
I take refuge in You.
10 Teach me to do Your good pleasure,
For You are my Elohim.
Let Your good Ruaḥ lead me
In the land of straightness.
11 For the sake of Your Name,
O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 revive me!
In Your righteousness,
Bring my being out of distress.
12 And in Your kindness,
Cut off my enemies.
And destroy all the adversaries of my life,
For I am Your servant!
