To the overseer: of David chanting. Waiting, I waited for Jehovah, and he will incline to me, and he will hear my cry.
Be silent to Jehovah and wait for him: thou shalt not be angry at him prospering his way, at the man doing wickednesses.
Unless I believed to look upon the goodness of Jehovah in the land of the living.
The eyes of Jehovah upon the just, and his ears to their cries.
O Jehovah, hear to my voice: thine ears shall be attentive to the voice of my supplication.
Incline, O my God, thine ear, and hear; open thine eyes, and see our desolations, and the city which thy name was called upon it: for not for our justice do we cause our supplications to fall before thee, but for thy many compassions.
Therefore be longsuffering, brethren, even to the arrival of the Lord. Behold, the farmer awaits the precious fruit of the earth, being longsuffering for it, even till he should receive the early and late rain.
