Geneva Study Bible
   1: I am the man that hath seen affliction by the rod of his wrath.
   2: He hath led me, and brought me into darkness, but not into light.
   3: Surely against me is he turned; he turneth his hand against me all the day.
   4: My flesh and my skin hath he made old; he hath broken my bones.
   5: He hath builded against me, and compassed me with gall and travail.
   6: He hath set me in dark places, as they that be dead of old.
   7: He hath hedged me about, that I cannot get out: he hath made my chain heavy.
   8: Also 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 was unto me as a bear lying in wait, and as 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 was a derision to all my people; and their song all the day.
   15: He hath filled me with bitterness, he hath made me drunken 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 forgat prosperity.
   18: And I said, My strength and my hope is perished from the LORD:
   19: Remembering mine affliction and my misery, the wormwood and the gall.
   20: My soul hath them still in remembrance, and is humbled in me.
   21: This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.
   22: It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
   23: They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
   24: The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.
   25: The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.
   26: It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.
   27: It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth.
   28: He sitteth alone and keepeth silence, because he hath borne 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 though he cause grief, yet will he have compassion according to the multitude of his mercies.
   33: For he doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men.
   34: To crush under his feet all the prisoners of the earth,
   35: To turn aside the right of a man before the face of the most High,
   36: To subvert a man in his cause, the Lord approveth not.
   37: Who is he that saith, and it cometh to pass, when the Lord commandeth it not?
   38: Out of the mouth of the most High proceedeth not 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 the LORD.
   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 with anger, and persecuted us: thou hast slain, thou hast not pitied.
   44: Thou hast covered thyself with a cloud, that our prayer should not pass through.
   45: Thou hast made us as the offscouring and refuse in the midst of the people.
   46: All our enemies have opened their mouths against us.
   47: Fear and a snare is come upon us, desolation and destruction.
   48: Mine eye runneth down with rivers of water for the destruction of the daughter of my people.
   49: Mine eye trickleth down, and ceaseth not, without any intermission,
   50: Till the LORD look down, and behold from heaven.
   51: Mine eye affecteth mine heart because of all the daughters of my city.
   52: Mine enemies chased me sore, like a bird, without cause.
   53: They have cut off my life in the dungeon, and cast a stone upon me.
   54: Waters flowed over mine head; then I said, I am cut off.
   55: I called upon thy name, O LORD, out of the low dungeon.
   56: Thou hast heard my voice: hide not thine ear at my breathing, at my cry.
   57: Thou drewest near in the day that I called upon thee: thou saidst, Fear not.
   58: O Lord, thou hast pleaded the causes of my soul; thou hast redeemed my life.
   59: O LORD, thou hast seen my wrong: judge thou my cause.
   60: Thou hast seen all their vengeance and all their imaginations against me.
   61: Thou hast heard their reproach, O LORD, and all their imaginations against me;
   62: The lips of those that rose up against me, and their device against me all the day.
   63: Behold their sitting down, and their rising up; I am their musick.
   64: Render unto them a recompence, O LORD, according to the work of their hands.
   65: Give them sorrow of heart, thy curse unto them.
   66: Persecute and destroy them in anger from under the heavens of the LORD.
