Psalm 142 (the Seventh Penitential Psalm)

Hear, O Lord, my prayer: give ear to my supplication in Thy truth: hear me in Thy justice.
And enter not into judgment with Thy servant: for in Thy sight no man living shall be justified.
For the enemy hath persecuted my soul: He hath brought down my life to the earth.
He hath made me to dwell in darkness as those that have been dead of old: and my spirit is in anguish within me: my heart within me is troubled.
I remembered the days of old, I meditated on all Thy works: I meditated upon the words of Thy hands.
I stretched forth my hands to Thee: my soul is as earth without water unto Thee.
Hear me speedily, O Lord: my spirit hath fainted away.
Turn not away Thy face from me, lest I be like unto them that go down into the pit.
Cause me to hear Thy mercy in the morning; for in Thee have I hoped.
Make the way known to me, wherein I should walk: for I have lifted up my soul to Thee.
Deliver me from my enemies, O Lord, to Thee have I fled: teach me to do Thy will, for Thou art my God.
Thy good spirit shall lead me into the right land: for thy Name's sake, O Lord, Thou wilt quicken me in Thy justice.
Thou wilt bring my soul out of trouble: and in Thy mercy Thou wilt destroy my enemies.
And Thou wilt cut of all them that afflict my soul: for I am Thy servant.
Glory be...
