O LORD,rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.2
For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me sore .
There is no soundness in my fleshbecause of thine anger; neither is there any resta in my bonesbecause of my sin.4
For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavyburden they are too heavy for me.
My woundsstink and are corruptbecause of my foolishness.6
I am troubled ;b I am bowed downgreatly; I gomourning all the day long.
For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease: and there is no soundness in my flesh.8
I am feeble and sorebroken : I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart.9Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee.
My heartpanteth , my strengthfaileth me: as for the light of mine eyes,it also is gonec from me.
My lovers and my friendsstand aloof from my sore;d and my kinsmenstand afar off.12
They also that seek after my life lay snares for me: and they that seek my hurtspeak mischievous things, and imaginedeceits all the day long.
But I, as a deaf man, heard not; and I was as a dumb man that openeth not his mouth.14
Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth are no reproofs.15
For in thee, O LORD, do I hope : thou wilt hear , O Lord my God.16
For I said , Hear me, lest otherwise they should rejoice over me: when my footslippeth , they magnify themselves against me.
For I am ready to halt,e and my sorrow is continually before me.
For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin.19
But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong : and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied .
They also that renderevil for good are mine adversaries ; because I follow the thing that good is.
21Forsake me not, O LORD: O my God, be not far from me.
Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation.
