How long, O Yahweh? will you forget me forever?
How long will you hide your face from me?
2 How long shall I take counsel in my soul,
Having sorrow in my heart all the day?
How long shall my enemy be exalted over me?
3 Consider and answer me, O Yahweh my Elohim:
Lighten my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;
4 Lest my enemy say, I have prevailed against him;
Lest my adversaries rejoice when I am moved.
5 But I have trusted in your lovingkindness;
My heart shall rejoice in your salvation.
6 I will sing to Yahweh,
Because he has dealt bountifully with me.
For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.
The fool has said in his heart,
There is no Elohim.
They are corrupt, they have done abominable works;
There is none that does good.
2 Yahweh looked down from heaven upon the children of men,
To see if there were any that did understand,
That did seek after Elohim.
3 They have all gone aside; they have together become filthy;
There is none that does good, no, not one.
4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge,
Who eat up my people as they eat bread,
And call not upon Yahweh?
5 There were they in great fear;
For Elohim is in the generation of the righteous.
6 You put to shame the counsel of the poor,
Because Yahweh is his refuge.
7 Oh that the salvation of Israel had come out of Zion!
When Yahweh brings back the captivity of his people,
Then shall Jacob rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
A Psalm of David.
Yahweh, who shall sojourn in your tabernacle?
Who shall dwell in your holy hill?
2 He that walks uprightly, and works righteousness,
And speaks truth in his heart;
3 He that slanders not with his tongue,
Nor does evil to his friend,
Nor takes up a reproach against his neighbor;
4 In whose eyes a reprobate is despised,
But who honors them that fear Yahweh;
He that swears to his own hurt, and changes not;
5 He that puts not out his money to interest,
Nor takes reward against the innocent.
He that does these things shall never be moved.
Michtam of David
