Summary/Abstract: The crisis of the Author of the Psalm 13 is real, present, painful, and persistent. For lack of help from humans and from God, the Psalmist make finally a decision to trust in God. This attitude does not guarantee any metamorphosis of the behavior of the Psalmist’s enemies, but it appears to be a theological-pragmatic attempt to resolve the situation of crisis. When all means have fallen the Psalmist has resort to God. God is the only One who, even when apparently lets the Psalmist down, leads human being through the crisis with hopeful hand.
