1 How long, O Yahweh? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? 2 How long must I take counsel in my soul, [and] sorrow in my heart [all the] day? How long will my enemy be exalted over me?
3 Consider [and] answer me, O Yahweh my God. Give light to my eyes lest I sleep [the sleep of] death, 4 [and] lest my enemy should say, "I have overcome him," [lest] my enemies rejoice because I am shaken.
