Psalm 142 (the Seventh Penitential Psalm)

Hear, O Lord, my prayer:

give ear to my supplication in Thy truth:

hear me in Thy justice.

And enter not into judgment with Thy servant:

for in Thy sight no man living shall be justified.

For the enemy hath persecuted my soul:

He hath brought down my life to the earth.

He hath made me to dwell in darkness

as those that have been dead of old:

and my spirit is in anguish within me:

my heart within me is troubled.

I remembered the days of old, I meditated on all Thy works:

I meditated upon the words of Thy hands.

I stretched forth my hands to Thee:

my soul is as earth without water unto Thee.

Hear me speedily, O Lord: my spirit hath fainted away.

Turn not away Thy face from me,

lest I be like unto them that go down into the pit.

Cause me to hear Thy mercy in the morning;

for in Thee have I hoped.

Make the way known to me, wherein I should walk:

for I have lifted up my soul to Thee.

Deliver me from my enemies, O Lord, to Thee have I fled:

teach me to do Thy will, for Thou art my God.

Thy good spirit shall lead me into the right land:

for thy Name's sake, O Lord,

Thou wilt quicken me in Thy justice.

Thou wilt bring my soul out of trouble:

and in Thy mercy Thou wilt destroy my enemies.

And Thou wilt cut of all them that afflict my soul:

for I am Thy servant.

Glory be...
