Mine eyes fail for thy salvation, and for the word of thy righteousness.
CAPH. My soul fainteth for thy salvation: but I hope in thy word.
Mine eyes fail for thy word, saying, When wilt thou comfort me?
I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried: mine eyes fail while I wait for my God.
My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: I say, more than they that watch for the morning.
Hear me speedily, O LORD: my spirit faileth: hide not thy face from me, lest I be like unto them that go down into the pit.
As for us, our eyes as yet failed for our vain help: in our watching we have watched for a nation that could not save us.
