1 How long? LORD, will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? 2 How long must I struggle in my soul at night and have sorrow in my heart during the day? How long will my enemy rise up against me?
3 Look at me! Answer me, LORD, my God! Give light to my eyes! Otherwise, I will sleep in death; 4 Otherwise, my enemy will say, "I have overcome him;" Otherwise, my persecutor will rejoice when I am shaken.
