Today's Text:

Psalms 13: kjv

(1) How long wilt thou forget me, O LORD? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
(2) How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?
(3) Consider and hear me, O LORD my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;
(4) Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.
(5) But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
(6) I will sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.
