Book of Psalms
lord God of my salvation, I have cried day and night
88:2 Let my prayer come before thee: incline thine
ear unto my cry;
88:3 For my soul is full of troubles: and my life
draweth nigh unto the grave.
88:4 I am counted with them that go down into the
pit: I am as a man that hath no strength:
88:5 Free among the dead, like the slain that lie in
the grave, whom thou rememberest no more: and they
are cut off from thy hand.
88:6 Thou hast laid me in the lowest pit, in
darkness, in the deeps.
88:7 Thy wrath lieth hard upon me, and thou hast
afflicted me with all thy waves. Selah.
88:8 Thou hast put away mine acquaintance far from
me; thou hast made me an abomination unto them: I am
shut up, and I cannot come forth.
88:9 Mine eye mourneth by reason of affliction:
LORD, I have called daily upon thee, I have
stretched out my hands unto thee.
88:10 Wilt thou shew wonders to the dead? shall the
dead arise and praise thee? Selah.
88:11 Shall thy lovingkindness be declared in the
grave? or thy faithfulness in destruction?
88:12 Shall thy wonders be known in the dark? and
thy righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?
88:13 But unto thee have I cried, O LORD; and in the
morning shall my prayer prevent thee.
88:14 LORD, why castest thou off my soul? why hidest
thou thy face from me?
88:15 I am afflicted and ready to die from my youth
up: while I suffer thy terrors I am distracted.
88:16 Thy fierce wrath goeth over me; thy terrors
have cut me off.
88:17 They came round about me daily like water;
they compassed me about together.
88:18 Lover and friend hast thou put far from me,
and mine acquaintance into darkness.
