Psalm 143:1-12 KJV
Hear my prayer, O Lord , give ear to my supplications: in thy faithfulness answer me, and in thy righteousness.

[2] And enter not into judgment with thy servant: for in thy sight shall no man living be justified. [

3] For the enemy hath persecuted my soul; he hath smitten my life down to the ground; he hath made me to dwell in darkness, as those that have been long dead. [

4] Therefore is my spirit overwhelmed within me; my heart within me is desolate.

[5] I remember the days of old; I meditate on all thy works; I muse on the work of thy hands. [

6] I stretch forth my hands unto thee: my soul thirsteth after thee, as a thirsty land. Selah.

[7] Hear me speedily, O Lord : my spirit faileth: hide not thy face from me, lest I be like unto them that go down into the pit.

[8] Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee.

[9] Deliver me, O Lord , from mine enemies: I flee unto thee to hide me.

[10] Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness. [

11] Quicken me, O Lord , for thy name's sake: for thy righteousness' sake bring my soul out of trouble.

[12] And of thy mercy cut off mine enemies, and destroy all them that afflict my soul: for I am thy servant.
