Give ear, O God, to my prayer, And do not hide thyself from my supplication:
Hear, O God, my loud cry, Attend unto my prayer:
O Yahweh! do not, in thine anger, correct me, nor, in thy wrath, chastise me.
Hear, O Yahweh, the right, Attend to my loud cry, Give ear unto my prayer, on lips that would not deceive:
Do not hide thy face from me, Do not repulse, in thine anger, thine own servant, - My help, thou hast been, Do not send me away nor forsake me, O my saving God!
Unto thee, O Yahweh, do I cry, O my Rock! do not turn in silence from me, - lest, if thou turn from me in silence, I be like them who go down into the pit.
O God! by thine own Name, save me, And, by thine own strength, wilt thou vindicate me?
Hear, O God, my voice when I complain, From dread peril by the foe, wilt thou guard my life.
O Shepherd of Israel, give ear, Thou who leddest forth Joseph like a rock, Thou who art throned on the cherubim, appear!
O Yahweh, God of hosts! How long hast thou been wroth with the prayer of thy people?
Yea, when I make outcry and implore, he hath shut out my prayer;
