Surely then you will count my steps1 but not keep track of my sin.217
My offenses will be sealed3 up in a bag;4 you will cover over my sin.518
"But as a mountain erodes and crumbles6 and as a rock is moved from its place,719
as water wears away stones and torrents8 wash away the soil,9 so you destroy man's hope.1020
You overpower him once for all, and he is gone;11 you change his countenance and send him away.1221
If his sons are honored, he does not know it; if they are brought low, he does not see it.1322
He feels but the pain of his own body14 and mourns only for himself.15"
