38:1 A Psalm of David, to make memorial.
38:2 O the Lord, rebuke me not in Thine anger; neither chasten me in Thy wrath.
38:3 For Thine arrows are gone deep into me, and Thy hand is come down upon me.
38:4 There is no soundness in my flesh because of Thine indignation; neither is there any health in my bones because of my sin.
38:5 For mine iniquities are gone over my head; as a heavy burden they are too heavy for me.
38:6 My wounds are noisome, they fester, because of my foolishness.
38:7 I am bent and bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day.
38:8 For my loins are filled with burning; and there is no soundness in my flesh.
38:9 I am benumbed and sore crushed; I groan by reason of the moaning of my heart.
38:10 L-rd, all my desire is before Thee; and my sighing is not hid from Thee.
38:11 My heart fluttereth, my strength faileth me; as for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me.
38:12 My friends and my companions stand aloof from my plague; and my kinsmen stand afar off.
38:13 They also that seek after my life lay snares for me; and they that seek my hurt speak crafty devices, and utter deceits all the day.
38:14 But I am as a deaf man, I hear not; and I am as a dumb man that openeth not his mouth.
38:15 Yea, I am become as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth are no arguments.
38:16 For in Thee, O the Lord, do I hope; Thou wilt answer, O L-rd my God.
38:17 For I said: 'Lest they rejoice over me; when my foot slippeth, they magnify themselves against me.'
38:18 For I am ready to halt, and my pain is continually before me.
38:19 For I do declare mine iniquity; I am full of care because of my sin.
38:20 But mine enemies are strong in health; and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.
38:21 They also that repay evil for good are adversaries unto me, because I follow the thing that is good.
38:22 Forsake me not, O the Lord; O my God, be not far from me.
38:23 Make haste to help me, O Lord, my salvation.
