Lord, God of my salvation, I cry out before You day and night.
May my prayer reach Your presence; listen to my cry.
For I have had enough troubles, and my life is near Sheol.
I am counted among those going down to the Pit.a I am like a man without strength,
abandonedb among the dead. I am like the slain lying in the grave,c whom You no longer remember, and who are cut off from Your care.d6
You have put me in the lowest part of the Pit,e in the darkest places, in the depths.
