1: I [am] the man [who] hath seen affliction By the rod of His wrath. 2: Me He hath led, and causeth to go [in] darkness, and without light. 3: Surely against me He turneth back, He turneth His hand all the day. 4: He hath worn out my flesh and my skin. He hath broken my bones. 5: He hath built up against me, And setteth round poverty and weariness. 6: In dark places He hath caused me to dwell, As the dead of old. 7: He hath hedged me about, and I go not out, He hath made heavy my fetter. 8: Also when I call and cry out, He hath shut out my prayer. 9: He hath hedged my ways with hewn work, My paths He hath made crooked. 10: A bear lying in wait He [is] to me, A lion in secret hiding-places. 11: My ways He is turning aside, and He pulleth me in pieces, He hath made me a desolation. 12: He hath trodden His bow, And setteth me up as a mark for an arrow. 13: He hath caused to enter into my reins The sons of His quiver. 14: I have been a derision to all my people, Their song all the day. 15: He hath filled me with bitter things, He hath filled me [with] wormwood. 16: And He breaketh with gravel my teeth, He hath covered me with ashes. 17: And Thou castest off from peace my soul, I have forgotten prosperity. 18: And I say, Perished hath my strength and my hope from Jehovah. 19: Remember my affliction and my mourning, Wormwood and gall! 20: Remember well, and bow down doth my soul in me. 21: This I turn to my heart -- therefore I hope. 22: The kindnesses of Jehovah! For we have not been consumed, For not ended have His mercies. 23: New every morning, abundant [is] thy faithfulness. 24: My portion [is] Jehovah, hath my soul said, Therefore I hope for Him. 25: Good [is] Jehovah to those waiting for Him, To the soul [that] seeketh Him. 26: Good! when one doth stay and stand still For the salvation of Jehovah. 27: Good for a man that he beareth a yoke in his youth. 28: He sitteth alone, and is silent, For He hath laid [it] upon him. 29: He putteth in the dust his mouth, if so be there is hope. 30: He giveth to his smiter the cheek, He is filled with reproach. 31: For the Lord doth not cast off to the age. 32: For though He afflicted, yet He hath pitied, According to the abundance of His kindness. 33: For He hath not afflicted with His heart, Nor doth He grieve the sons of men. 34: To bruise under one's feet any bound ones of earth, 35: To turn aside the judgment of a man, Over-against the face of the Most High, 36: To subvert a man in his cause, the Lord hath not approved. 37: Who [is] this -- he hath said, and it is, [And] the Lord hath not commanded [it]? 38: From the mouth of the Most High Go not forth the evils and the good. 39: What -- sigh habitually doth a living man, A man for his sin? 40: We search our ways, and investigate, And turn back unto Jehovah. 41: We lift up our heart on the hands unto God in the heavens. 42: We -- we have transgressed and rebelled, Thou -- Thou hast not forgiven. 43: Thou hast covered Thyself with anger, And dost pursue us; Thou hast slain -- Thou hast not pitied. 44: Thou hast covered Thyself with a cloud, So that prayer doth not pass through. 45: Offscouring and refuse Thou dost make us In the midst of the peoples. 46: Opened against us their mouth have all our enemies. 47: Fear and a snare hath been for us, Desolation and destruction. 48: Rivulets of water go down my eye, For the destruction of the daughter of my people. 49: Mine eye is poured out, And doth not cease without intermission, 50: Till Jehovah looketh and seeth from the heavens, 51: My eye affecteth my soul, Because of all the daughters of my city. 52: Hunted me sore as a bird have my enemies without cause. 53: They have cut off in a pit my life, And they cast a stone against me. 54: Flowed have waters over my head, I have said, I have been cut off. 55: I called Thy name, O Jehovah, from the lower pit. 56: My voice Thou hast heard, Hide not Thine ear at my breathing -- at my cry. 57: Thou hast drawn near in the day I call Thee, Thou hast said, Fear not. 58: Thou hast pleaded, O Lord, the pleadings of my soul, Thou hast redeemed my life. 59: Thou hast seen, O Jehovah, my overthrow, Judge Thou my cause. 60: Thou hast seen all their vengeance, All their thoughts of me. 61: Thou hast heard their reproach, O Jehovah, All their thoughts against me, 62: The lips of my withstanders, Even their meditation against me all the day. 63: Their sitting down, and their rising up, Behold attentively, I [am] their song. 64: Thou returnest to them the deed, O Jehovah, According to the work of their hands. 65: Thou givest to them a covered heart, Thy curse to them. 66: Thou pursuest in anger, and destroyest them, From under the heavens of Jehovah!
