Chapter 38

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.
