1: (A Psalm of David, to bring to remembrance.) 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 cometh down upon me. 3: There is no soundness in my flesh because of thine indignation; no peace 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 stink, they are corrupt, because of my foolishness. 6: I am depressed; I am bowed down beyond measure; I go mourning all the day. 7: For my loins are full of burning, and there is no soundness in my flesh. 8: I am faint and broken beyond measure; I roar by reason of the agitation of my heart. 9: Lord, all my desire is before thee, and my sighing is not hid from thee. 10: My heart throbbeth, my strength hath left me; and the light of mine eyes, it also is no more with me. 11: My lovers and mine associates stand aloof from my stroke; and my kinsmen stand afar off. 12: And they 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 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, Jehovah, do I hope: thou wilt answer, O Lord my God. 16: For I said, Let them not rejoice over me! When my foot slipped, they magnified [themselves] against me. 17: For I am ready to halt, and my pain is continually before me. 18: For I will declare mine iniquity, I am grieved for my sin. 19: But mine enemies are lively, they are strong; and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied: 20: And they that render evil for good are adversaries unto me; because I pursue what is good. 21: Forsake me not, Jehovah; O my God, be not far from me. 22: Make haste to help me, O Lord, my salvation.
