Psalm 143

Prayer for Deliverance from Enemies

A Psalm of David.

1

Hear my prayer, O Lord;

give ear to my supplications in your faithfulness;

answer me in your righteousness.

2

Do not enter into judgment with your servant,

for no one living is righteous before you.

 

3

For the enemy has pursued me,

crushing my life to the ground,

making me sit in darkness like those long dead.

4

Therefore my spirit faints within me;

my heart within me is appalled.

 

5

I remember the days of old,

I think about all your deeds,

I meditate on the works of your hands.

6

I stretch out my hands to you;

my soul thirsts for you like a parched land.Selah

 

7

Answer me quickly, O Lord;

my spirit fails.

Do not hide your face from me,

or I shall be like those who go down to the Pit.

8

Let me hear of your steadfast love in the morning,

for in you I put my trust.

Teach me the way I should go,

for to you I lift up my soul.

 

9

Save me, O Lord, from my enemies;

I have fled to you for refuge.

10

Teach me to do your will,

for you are my God.

Let your good spirit lead me

on a level path.

 

11

For your name’s sake, O Lord, preserve my life.

In your righteousness bring me out of trouble.

12

In your steadfast love cut off my enemies,

and destroy all my adversaries,

for I am your servant.
