Trust in Yahweh (Ps 143:7-143:8)

“Answer me quickly!

Yahweh!

My spirit fails!

Do not hide your face from me.

Otherwise I shall be

Like those who go down to the Pit.

Let me hear of your steadfast love

In the morning.

In you

I put my trust.

Teach me the way I should go.

To you

I lift up my soul.”

David wanted a quick answer to his prayer. His spirit was failing. He did not want Yahweh to hide his face because then he would go down into the Pit. He wanted to hear the steadfast love of Yahweh in the morning. David put all his trust in Yahweh so that Yahweh might teach him the way to go. He had lifted up his soul to Yahweh.
