Abstract | Full Text

The article makes philological-theological analyses of Psalm 13. Reviewing its each stanza (I: “Question and lament” /v 2–3/; II: “Calling for help” /v 4–5/; III: “Confession of thrust and gratitude” /v 6/) gave the possibility to study the existential-spiritual psalmist’s struggle. The trust that orans has placed in God performs the key role in the interpretation of the work. Despite the psalmist’s impatience caused by long God’s silence to answer the requests he has directed to Him, he did not stop to trust Him. He just might feel that resigning from hope which is the most nourishing fruit of faith in God one allows to stay in despair.
