How long, O Yahweh, wilt thou wholly forget me? How long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
When I kept silence, my bones became worn out, Through my groaning all the day;
I am bent, I am bowed down very low. All the day, have I gloomily walked;
For, thou, art my defending God - Wherefore hast thou rejected me? Wherefore in gloom should I wander, because of the oppression of an enemy?
For, ashes - like bread, have I eaten, And, my drink - with my tears, have I mingled;
As a twittering swallow, so, do I chatter, I coo as a dove, - Mine eyes languish through looking on high, O My Lord! distress is upon me - my Surety!
O God! Hear my prayer, Give ear to the sayings of my mouth;
