Psalm 13 Young's Literal Translation (YLT)

13 To the Overseer. -- A Psalm of David. Till when, O Jehovah, Dost Thou forget me? -- for ever? Till when dost Thou hide Thy face from me?

Till when do I set counsels in my soul? Sorrow inn my heart daily? Till when is mine enemy exalted over me?

Look attentively; Answer me, O Jehovah, my God, Enlighten mine eyes, lest I sleep in death,

Lest mine enemy say, `I overcame him,' Mine adversaries joy when I am moved.

And I, in Thy kindness I have trusted, Rejoice doth my heart in Thy salvation.

I do sing to Jehovah, For He hath conferred benefits upon me!

Psalm 13 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 13[a]

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever?
    How long will you hide your face from me?
How long must I wrestle with my thoughts
    and day after day have sorrow in my heart?
    How long will my enemy triumph over me?

Look on me and answer, Lord my God.
    Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death,
and my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,
    and my foes will rejoice when I fall.

But I trust in your unfailing love;
    my heart rejoices in your salvation.
I will sing the Lord’s praise,
    for he has been good to me.
