David wants Yahweh to answer him (Ps 13:3-13:4)

“Consider me!

Answer me!


My God!

Give light to my eyes!

Otherwise I will sleep the sleep of death.

My enemy will say.

‘I have prevailed over him.’

My foes will rejoice

Because I am shaken.”

David wanted Yahweh to listen to him and answer him. He wanted his eyes kept open because otherwise he might fall into the sleep of death. His enemies might say that they have prevailed. His enemies would rejoice because He was shaken.
