Geneva Study Bible
   1: I am the man that hath seen affliction by the rod of his wrath.
   2: Me hath he led, and brought into darkness, and not into light.
   3: Surely against me hath he turned again and again his hand all the day.
   4: My flesh and my skin hath he wasted away, he hath broken my bones.
   5: He hath built against me, and encompassed [me] with gall and toil.
   6: He hath made me to dwell in dark places as those that have been long dead.
   7: He hath hedged me about that I cannot get out: he hath made my chain heavy.
   8: Even when I cry and shout, he shutteth out my prayer.
   9: He hath inclosed my ways with hewn stone, he hath made my paths crooked.
   10: He is unto me [as] a bear lying in wait, a lion in secret places.
   11: He hath turned aside my ways, and pulled me in pieces; he hath made me desolate.
   12: He hath bent his bow, and set me as a mark for the arrow.
   13: He hath caused the arrows of his quiver to enter into my reins.
   14: I am become a derision to all my people; their song all the day.
   15: He hath sated me with bitterness, he hath made me drunk with wormwood.
   16: He hath also broken my teeth with gravel stones, he hath covered me with ashes.
   17: And thou hast removed my soul far off from peace: I have forgotten prosperity.
   18: And I said, My strength is perished, and my hope in Jehovah.
   19: Remember thou mine affliction and my wandering, the wormwood and the gall.
   20: My soul hath [them] constantly in remembrance, and is humbled in me.
   21: -- This I recall to heart, therefore have I hope.
   22: It is of Jehovah's loving-kindness we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not;
   23: they are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
   24: Jehovah is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.
   25: Jehovah is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul [that] seeketh him.
   26: It is good that one should both wait, and that in silence, for the salvation of Jehovah.
   27: It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth:
   28: He sitteth solitary and keepeth silence, because he hath laid it upon him;
   29: he putteth his mouth in the dust, if so be there may be hope;
   30: he giveth his cheek to him that smiteth him; he is filled full with reproach.
   31: For the Lord will not cast off for ever;
   32: but if he have caused grief, he will have compassion according to the multitude of his loving-kindnesses:
   33: for he doth not willingly afflict or grieve the children of men.
   34: To crush under foot all the prisoners of the earth,
   35: to turn aside the right of a man before the face of the Most High,
   36: to wrong a man in his cause, -- will not the Lord see it?
   37: Who is he that saith, and there cometh to pass, what the Lord hath not commanded?
   38: Out of the mouth of the Most High doth not there proceed evil and good?
   39: Wherefore doth a living man complain, a man for the punishment of his sins?
   40: Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to Jehovah.
   41: Let us lift up our heart with [our] hands unto God in the heavens.
   42: We have transgressed and have rebelled: thou hast not pardoned.
   43: Thou hast covered thyself with anger, and pursued us; thou hast slain, thou hast not spared.
   44: Thou hast covered thyself with a cloud, that prayer should not pass through.
   45: Thou hast made us the offscouring and refuse in the midst of the peoples.
   46: All our enemies have opened their mouth against us.
   47: Fear and the pit are come upon us, devastation and ruin.
   48: Mine eye runneth down with streams of water for the ruin of the daughter of my people.
   49: Mine eye poureth down, and ceaseth not, without any intermission,
   50: till Jehovah look down and behold from the heavens.
   51: Mine eye affecteth my soul, because of all the daughters of my city.
   52: They that are mine enemies without cause have chased me sore like a bird.
   53: They have cut off my life in a pit, and cast a stone upon me.
   54: Waters streamed over my head; I said, I am cut off.
   55: I called upon thy name, Jehovah, out of the lowest pit.
   56: Thou hast heard my voice: hide not thine ear at my sighing, at my cry.
   57: Thou drewest near in the day that I called upon thee; thou saidst, Fear not.
   58: Lord, thou hast pleaded the cause of my soul, thou hast redeemed my life.
   59: Jehovah, thou hast seen my wrong: judge thou my cause.
   60: Thou hast seen all their vengeance, all their imaginations against me.
   61: Thou hast heard their reproach, O Jehovah, all their imaginations against me;
   62: the lips of those that rise up against me and their meditation against me all the day.
   63: Behold thou their sitting down and their rising up: I am their song.
   64: Render unto them a recompence, O Jehovah, according to the work of their hands;
   65: give them obduracy of heart, thy curse unto them;
   66: pursue them in anger, and destroy them from under the heavens of Jehovah.
