O LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your wrath.12
For your arrows2 have pierced me, and your hand has come down upon me.
Because of your wrath there is no health3 in my body; my bones4 have no soundness because of my sin.
My guilt has overwhelmed5 me like a burden too heavy to bear.65
My wounds7 fester and are loathsome8 because of my sinful folly.96
I am bowed down10 and brought very low; all day long I go about mourning.117
My back is filled with searing pain;12 there is no health13 in my body.
I am feeble and utterly crushed;14 I groan15 in anguish of heart.169
All my longings17 lie open before you, O Lord; my sighing18 is not hidden from you.
My heart pounds,19 my strength fails20 me; even the light has gone from my eyes.2111
My friends and companions avoid me because of my wounds;22 my neighbors stay far away.
