Rashi's Commentary:

Chapter 13

1. To the conductor, a song of David.   א. לַמְנַצֵּחַ מִזְמוֹר לְדָוִד:
How long: Four times, corresponding to the four kingdoms [Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Edom] and it is stated concerning all Israel.  
2. How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever? How long will You hide Your face from me?   ב. עַד אָנָה יְהֹוָה תִּשְׁכָּחֵנִי נֶצַח עַד אָנָה | תַּסְתִּיר אֶת פָּנֶיךָ מִמֶּנִּי:
3. How long will I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart by day; how long will my enemy have the upper hand over me?   ג. עַד אָנָה אָשִׁית עֵצוֹת בְּנַפְשִׁי יָגוֹן בִּלְבָבִי יוֹמָם עַד אָנָה | יָרוּם אֹיְבִי עָלָי:
4. Look and answer me, O Lord my God; enlighten my eyes lest I sleep the sleep of death.   ד. הַבִּיטָה עֲנֵנִי יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהָי הָאִירָה עֵינַי פֶּן אִישַׁן הַמָּוֶת:
lest I sleep the sleep of death: For death is called sleep, (as in Jer. 51:39): “and sleep a perpetual sleep.”  
5. Lest my enemy say, "I have overwhelmed him"; my adversaries will rejoice when I totter.   ה. פֶּן יֹאמַר אֹיְבִי יְכָלְתִּיו צָרַי יָגִילוּ כִּי אֶמּוֹט:
6. But I trusted in Your loving-kindness, my heart will rejoice in Your salvation; I will sing to the Lord for He has bestowed [it] upon me.   ו. וַאֲנִי | בְּחַסְדְּךָ בָטַחְתִּי יָגֵל לִבִּי בִּישׁוּעָתֶךָ אָשִׁירָה לַיהֹוָה כִּי גָמַל עָלָי:
