Chapter 38

1


 

  A Psalm of David, to bring to remembrance. O Jehovah, rebuke me not in thy wrath; Neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.  

 

 


2


 

  For thine arrows stick fast in me, And thy hand presseth me sore.  

 

 


3


 

  There is no soundness in my flesh because of thine indignation; Neither is there any health in my bones because of my sin.  

 

 


4


 

  For mine iniquities are gone over my head: As a heavy burden they are too heavy for me.  

 

 


5


 

  My wounds are loathsome and corrupt, Because of my foolishness.  

 

 


6


 

  I am pained and bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long.  

 

 


7


 

  For my loins are filled with burning; And there is no soundness in my flesh.  

 

 


8


 

  I am faint and sore bruised: I have groaned by reason of the disquietness of my heart.  

 

 


9


 

  Lord, all my desire is before thee; And my groaning is not hid from thee.  

 

 


10


 

  My heart throbbeth, my strength faileth me: As for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me.  

 

 


11


 

  My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my plague; And my kinsmen stand afar off.  

 

 


12


 

  They also that seek after my life lay snares [for me]; And they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, And meditate deceits all the day long.  

 

 


13


 

  But I, as a deaf man, hear not; And I am as a dumb man that openeth not his mouth.  

 

 


14


 

  Yea, I am as a man that heareth not, And in whose mouth are no reproofs.  

 

 


15


 

  For in thee, O Jehovah, do I hope: Thou wilt answer, O Lord my God.  

 

 


16


 

  For I said, Lest they rejoice over me: When my foot slippeth, they magnify themselves against me.  

 

 


17


 

  For I am ready to fall, And my sorrow is continually before me.  

 

 


18


 

  For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin.  

 

 


19


 

  But mine enemies are lively, [and] are strong; And they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.  

 

 


20


 

  They also that render evil for good Are adversaries unto me, because I follow the thing that is good.  

 

 


21


 

  Forsake me not, O Jehovah: O my God, be not far from me.  

 

 


22


 

  Make haste to help me, O Lord, my salvation.
