Psalm 12 [Psalm 13]
A prayer in tribulation.
Unto the end, a psalm for David.
How long, O Lord, wilt thou forget me unto the end? how long dost thou turn away thy face from me?
How long shall I take counsels in my soul, sorrow in my heart all the day?
How long shall my enemy be exalted over me? Consider, and hear me, O Lord, my God.
Enlighten my eyes, that I never sleep in death: lest at any time my enemy say: I have prevailed against him.
They that trouble me, will rejoice when I am moved: but I have trusted in thy mercy.
My heart shall rejoice in thy salvation: I will sing to the Lord, who giveth me good things: yea I will sing to the name of the Lord the most high.
