Psalm 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.
