1: A Psalm of David, to bring to remembrance. O LORD, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure. 2: For thy arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand falleth heavy upon me. 3: [There is] no soundness in my flesh because of thy anger; neither [is there any] rest in my bones because of my sin. 4: For my iniquities have gone over my head: as a heavy burden they are too heavy for me. 5: My wounds are offensive, [and] are corrupt because of my foolishness. 6: I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long. 7: For my loins are filled with a lothsome [disease]: and [there is] no soundness in my flesh. 8: I am feeble and grievously broken: I have roared 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 panteth, my strength faileth me: as for the light of my eyes, that also is gone from me. 11: My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my affliction; 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 imagine deceits all the day long. 13: But I, as a deaf [man], heard not; and [I was] as a dumb man [that] openeth not his mouth. 14: Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth [are] no reproofs. 15: For in thee, O LORD, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God. 16: For I said, [Hear me], lest [otherwise] they should rejoice over me: when my foot slippeth, they magnify [themselves] against me. 17: For I [am] ready to halt, and my sorrow [is] continually before me. 18: For I will declare my iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin. 19: But my enemies [are] lively, [and] they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied. 20: They also that render evil for good are my adversaries; because I follow [the thing that is] good. 21: Forsake me not, O LORD: O my God, be not far from me. 22: Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation.
