Psalm 38 (The Darby Translation)

View In My Bible
1 {A Psalm of David, to bring to remembrance.} Jehovah, rebuke me not in thy wrath; a neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure. b 2 For thine arrows stick fast in me, c and thy hand cometh down upon me. 3 There is no soundness in my flesh because of thine indignation; d no peace in my bones, because of my sin. 4 For mine iniquities are gone over e my head: as a heavy burden they are too heavy for me. 5 My wounds stink, they are corrupt, f because of my foolishness. 6 I am depressed; I am bowed down beyond measure; I go mourning all the day. 7 For my loins are full of burning, g and there is no soundness in my flesh. 8 I am faint and broken beyond measure; I roar by reason of the agitation of my heart. 9 Lord, all my desire is before thee, and my sighing is not hid from thee. 10 My heart throbbeth, my strength hath left me; and the light of mine eyes, it also is no more with me. 11 My lovers and mine associates stand aloof from my stroke; h and my kinsmen stand afar off. 12 And they that seek after my life lay snares [for me]; and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and meditate i deceits all the day long. 13 But I, as a deaf [man], hear not; and am as a dumb man that openeth not his mouth. 14 Yea, I am as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth are no reproofs. 15 For in thee, Jehovah, do I hope: *thou* wilt answer, O Lord my God. 16 For I said, Let them not rejoice over me! When my foot slipped, they magnified [themselves] against me. 17 For I am ready to halt, and my pain is continually before me. 18 For I will declare mine iniquity, I am grieved for my sin. 19 But mine enemies are lively, they are strong; and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied: 20 And they that render evil for good are adversaries j unto me; because I pursue what is good. 21 Forsake me not, Jehovah; O my God, be not far from me. 22 Make haste to help me, O Lord, my salvation.
