Do you show your wonders to the dead? Do those who are dead rise up and praise you?1 "Selah"
Is your love declared in the grave, your faithfulness2 in Destructiona ?
Are your wonders known in the place of darkness, or your righteous deeds in the land of oblivion?
But I cry to you for help,3 O LORD; in the morning4 my prayer comes before you.514
Why, O LORD, do you reject6 me and hide your face7 from me?
From my youth8 I have been afflicted9 and close to death; I have suffered your terrors10 and am in despair.1116
Your wrath12 has swept over me; your terrors13 have destroyed me.
All day long they surround me like a flood;14 they have completely engulfed me.
You have taken my companions15 and loved ones from me; the darkness is my closest friend.
