A Psalm of David.
3For the enemy has pursued me;
he has crushed my life to the ground;
he has made me sit in darkness like those long dead.
4Therefore my spirit faints within me;
my heart within me is appalled.
5I remember the days of old,
I meditate on all that you have done;
I muse on what your hands have wrought.
6I stretch out my hands to you;
my soul thirsts for you like a parched land. Selah
7Make haste to answer me, O Yahweh! My spirit fails!
Hide not your face from me, lest I be like those who go down to the Pit.
8Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love,
for in you I put my trust.
Teach me the way I should go,
for to you I lift up my soul.
9Deliver me, O Yahweh, from my enemies!
I have fled to you for refuge!
10Teach me to do your will, for you are my God!
Let your good spirit lead me on a level path!
11For your name's sake, O Yahweh, preserve my life!
In your righteousness bring me out of trouble!
