O LORDGod of my salvation, I have criedday and night before thee:
Let my prayercomebefore thee: incline thine ear unto my cry;3
For my soul is full of troubles: and my life draweth nigh unto the grave.4
I am counted with them that go down into the pit: I am as a man that hath no strength:5Free among the dead , like the slain that lie in the grave, whom thou rememberest no more: and they are cut off from thy hand.6
Thou hast laid me in the lowestpit, in darkness, in the deeps.
