A (3) For THE ENEMY hath persecuted my soul; he hath smitten my life down to the ground; he hath made me to dwell in darkness, as those that have been long dead.
B (4) Therefore is MY SPIRIT overwhelmed within me; my heart within me is desolate.
C (5) I remember the days of old; I meditate on all thy works; I muse on the work OF THY HANDS.
C1 (6) I stretch forth MY HANDS unto thee: my soul thirsteth after thee, as a thirsty land. Selah.
B1 (7 8) Hear me speedily, O Yahweh: MY SPIRIT faileth: hide not thy face from me, lest I be like unto them that go down into the pit. Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee.
A1 (9) Deliver me, O Yahweh, from MINE ENEMIES: I flee unto thee to hide me.
A (8) Cause me to hear THY LOVINGKINDNESS <02617> in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk;
B (8) for I lift up MY SOUL unto thee.
C (9) Deliver me, O YAHWEH, from mine enemies: I flee unto thee to hide me.
D (10) Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.
C1 (11) Quicken me, O YAHWEH, for thy name’s sake:
B1 (11) for thy righteousness’ sake bring MY SOUL out of trouble.
A1 (12) And OF THY MERCY <02617> cut off mine enemies, and destroy all them that afflict my soul: for I am thy servant.
