Book of Psalms
lord, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me
in thy hot displeasure.
38:2 For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand
presseth me sore.
38:3 There is no soundness in my flesh because of
thine anger; neither is there any rest in my bones
because of my sin.
38:4 For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as
an heavy burden they are too heavy for me.
38:5 My wounds stink and are corrupt because of my
38:6 I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go
mourning all the day long.
38:7 For my loins are filled with a loathsome
disease: and there is no soundness in my flesh.
38:8 I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by
reason of the disquietness of my heart.
38:9 Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my
groaning is not hid from thee.
38:10 My heart panteth, my strength faileth me: as
for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me.
38:11 My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my
sore; and my kinsmen stand afar off.
38:12 They also that seek after my life lay snares
for me: and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous
things, and imagine deceits all the day long.
38:13 But I, as a deaf man, heard not; and I was as
a dumb man that openeth not his mouth.
38:14 Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in
whose mouth are no reproofs.
38:15 For in thee, O LORD, do I hope: thou wilt
hear, O Lord my God.
38:16 For I said, Hear me, lest otherwise they
should rejoice over me: when my foot slippeth, they
magnify themselves against me.
38:17 For I am ready to halt, and my sorrow is
continually before me.
38:18 For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be
sorry for my sin.
38:19 But mine enemies are lively, and they are
strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are
38:20 They also that render evil for good are mine
adversaries; because I follow the thing that good
38:21 Forsake me not, O LORD: O my God, be not far
38:22 Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation.
