Psalm 13

Crying to God for help when gravely ill.

1–2 Cry to God when suffering
3–4 Plea for healing
5–6 Trusting and praising God for His care

  • Have you ever felt this way (vv. 1–2)? Do you seek the Lord during such times as David did here?
  • The psalmist’s eyes were “darkened” (v. 4) and the rest of the phrase shows that he is gravely ill. What is he asking God to do then?
  • What changed David’s tone from the beginning of the psalm to the end?
