Psalm 13 Jan. 5 For the Chief Musician. A Psalm by David.  1How long, Yahweh? Will You forget me forever? How long will You hide Your face from me? 2How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart every day? How long shall my enemy triumph over me? 3Look, and answer me, Yahweh my God. Give light to my eyes, lest I sleep in death; 4lest my enemy say, I have prevailed against him; lest my adversaries rejoice when I fall.  5But I trust in Your grace. My heart rejoices in Your salvation. 6I will sing to Yahweh, because He has been good to me.   


13:2,6 David could have sorrow in his heart and yet rejoice in his heart because he knew that God was listening to his prayers and would one day answer. This is the almost schizophrenic experience of all believers.
