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.
