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.
