Chapter 38

1

 A Psalm of David, to bring to remembrance. O LORD, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure. 


2

 For thy arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand falleth heavy upon me. 


3

 There is no soundness in my flesh because of thy anger; neither is there any rest in my bones because of my sin. 


4

 For my iniquities have gone over my head: as a heavy burden they are too heavy for me. 


5

 My wounds are offensive, and are corrupt because of my foolishness. 


6

 I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long. 


7

 For my loins are filled with a lothsome disease: and there is no soundness in my flesh. 


8

 I am feeble and grievously broken: I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart. 


9

 Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee. 


10

 My heart panteth, my strength faileth me: as for the light of my eyes, that also is gone from me. 


11

 My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my affliction; and my kinsmen stand afar off. 


12

 They also that seek after my life lay snares for me: and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and imagine deceits all the day long. 


13

 But I, as a deaf man, heard not; and I was as a dumb man that openeth not his mouth. 


14

 Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth are no reproofs. 


15

 For in thee, O LORD, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God. 


16

 For I said, Hear me, lest otherwise they should rejoice over me: when my foot slippeth, they magnify themselves against me. 


17

 For I am ready to halt, and my sorrow is continually before me. 


18

 For I will declare my iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin. 


19

 But my enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied. 


20

 They also that render evil for good are my adversaries; because I follow the thing that is good. 


21

 Forsake me not, O LORD: O my God, be not far from me. 


22

 Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation. 


Psalms 39
