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