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.
