Chapter 38

1

A Psalm of David, to bring to remembrance.
53 O LORD, rebuke55 me not in thy wrath: neither chasten17 me in thy hot displeasure.

2

For thine arrows stick fast8 in me, and thy hand presseth me sore.4

3

[There is] no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger; neither [is there any] rest in my bones because of my sin.

4

For mine iniquities are gone over1 mine head: as an heavy burden they are too heavy4 for me.

5

My wounds stink52 [and] are corrupt8 because of my foolishness.

6

I am troubled;8 I am bowed down1 greatly; I go14 mourning6 all the day long.

7

For my loins are filled1 with a loathsome12 [disease]: and [there is] no soundness in my flesh.

8

I am feeble8 and sore broken:8 I have roared1 by reason of the disquietness of my heart.

9

Lord, all my desire [is] before thee; and my groaning is not hid8 from thee.

10

My heart panteth,43 my strength faileth1 me: as for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me.

11

My lovers6 and my friends stand4 aloof from my sore; and my kinsmen stand1 afar off.

12

They also that seek18 after my life lay snares17 [for me]: and they that seek6 my hurt speak14 mischievous things, and imagine4 deceits all the day long.

13

But I, as a deaf [man], heard4 not; and [I was] as a dumb man [that] openeth4 not his mouth.

14

Thus I was as a man that heareth6 not, and in whose mouth [are] no reproofs.

15

For in thee, O LORD, do I hope:52 thou wilt hear,4 O Lord my God.

16

For I said,1 [Hear me], lest [otherwise] they should rejoice4 over me: when my foot slippeth,2 they magnify52 [themselves] against me.

17

For I [am] ready12 to halt, and my sorrow [is] continually before me.

18

For I will declare55 mine iniquity; I will be sorry4 for my sin.

19

But mine enemies6 [are] lively, [and] they are strong:1 and they that hate6 me wrongfully are multiplied.1

20

They also that render18 evil for good are mine adversaries;4 because I follow2 [the thing that] good [is].

21

Forsake4 me not, O LORD: O my God, be not far4 from me.

22

Make haste3 to help me, O Lord my salvation.
