A song. A psalm of the sons of Korach. For the leader. Set to "Sickness that Causes Suffering." A maskil of Heiman the Ezrachi. ADONAI, God of my salvation, when I cry out to you in the night,
let my prayer come before you, turn your ear to my cry for help!
For I am oversupplied with troubles, which have brought me to the brink of Sh'ol.
I am counted among those going down to the pit, like a man who is beyond help,
left by myself among the dead, like the slain who lie in the grave -you no longer remember them; they are cut off from your care.
You plunged me into the bottom of the pit, into dark places, into the depths.
