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 built against me, and compassed [me] with gall and labor. 6: He hath set me in dark places, as [they that are] 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] to 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 hath perished from the LORD: 19: Remembering my 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 to 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 should 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 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 causeth 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: Why 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 to 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: My eye runneth down with rivers of water for the destruction of the daughter of my people. 49: My eye trickleth down, and ceaseth not, without any intermission, 50: Till the LORD shall look down, and behold from heaven. 51: My eye affecteth my heart because of all the daughters of my city. 52: My enemies chased me fiercely, 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 my 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 thy 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 music. 64: Render to them a recompense, O LORD, according to the work of their hands. 65: Give them sorrow of heart, thy curse to them. 66: Persecute and destroy them in anger from under the heavens of the LORD.
