The thirteenth psalm, to the chief musician. Psalm of David.
How long will thou forget me, O LORD? for ever? how long will thou hide your face from me? How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall my enemy be exalted over me? ( Psalms 13:1-19.13.2 )
The cry, "O Lord, how long do I go on in this trial? How long, Lord, before You deliver?"
Consider and hear me, O LORD my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death; Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved. But I have trusted in thy mercy; and my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation ( Psalms 13:3-19.13.5 ).
Comes on strong at the end. He speaks of the confidence of the victory that shall be his.
I will sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully with me ( Psalms 13:6 ).
