Psalm 13
William Kelly Major Works Commentary
To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. How long wilt thou forget me, O LORD? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
Here things are no better, but the heart is more urgent, and "How long" is the key-note. It also is inscribed "To the chief musician: a psalm of David." If deferred hope makes the righteous sick, confidence grows up to joy and gladness.

It is the patience of the saints, waiting for the Kingdom in power and praise.

How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?
Consider and hear me, O LORD my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;
Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.
But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
I will sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.
