143 Hear my prayer, Lord, Listen to my pleadings! Answer me in Your faithfulness, in Your righteousness! 2 And do not enter into judgment with Your servant, For no person living is righteous in Your sight. 3 For the enemy has persecuted my soul; He has crushed my life to the ground; He has made me dwell in dark places, like those who have long been dead. 4 Therefore my spirit [a]feels weak within me; My heart is [b]appalled within me.
5 I remember the days of old; I meditate on all Your accomplishments; I reflect on the work of Your hands. 6 I spread out my hands to You; My soul longs for You, like a weary land. Selah
7 Answer me quickly, Lord, my spirit fails; Do not hide Your face from me, Or I will be the same as those who go down to the pit. 8 Let me hear Your faithfulness in the morning, For I trust in You; Teach me the way in which I should walk; For to You I lift up my soul. 9 Save me, Lord, from my enemies; [c]I take refuge in You.
10 Teach me to do Your will, For You are my God; Let Your good Spirit lead me on level [d]ground. 11 For the sake of Your name, Lord, revive me. In Your righteousness bring my soul out of trouble. 12 And in Your faithfulness, [e]destroy my enemies, And eliminate all those who attack my soul, For I am Your servant.
