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.
