O LORD, 1rebuke me not in Your wrath, And chasten me not in Your burninganger.
For Your 2arrows have sunkdeep into me, And 3Your hand has presseddown on me.
3There is 4nosoundness in my flesh5because of Your indignation ; There is nohealth6in my bonesbecause of my sin.
For my 7iniquities are goneover my head ; As a heavyburden they weightoomuch for me.
My awoundsgrowfoul and festerBecause of 8my folly.
I am bent over and 9greatlyboweddown ; I 10gomourningallday long.
For my loins are filled with 11burning, And there is 12nosoundness in my flesh.
I am 13benumbed and bbadlycrushed ; I c14groanbecause of the dagitation of my heart.
9Lord, all15my desire is ebefore You; And my 16sighing is not hidden from You.
My heartthrobs, 17my strengthfails me; And the 18light of my eyes, evenfthat ghas gone from me.
My h19loved ones and my friendsstandaloof from my plague ; And my kinsmen20standafar off.
Those who 21seek my life22laysnares for me; And those who 23seek to injure me have ithreateneddestruction, And they 24devisetreacheryallday long.
But I, like a deafman, do not hear ; And I am like a 25muteman who does not open his mouth.
Yes, I am like a manwho does not hear, And in whose mouth are noarguments.
For 26I jhope in You, O LORD ; You 27will answer, O Lord my God.
For I said, "May they not rejoice over me, Who, when my footslips, 28would magnify themselves against me."
For I am 29ready to fall, And 30my ksorrow is continuallybefore me.
For I l31confess my iniquity ; I am full of 32anxietybecause of my sin.
But my 33enemies are vigorous and mstrong, And many are those who 34hate me wrongfully.
And those who 35repayevil for good, They 36oppose me, because I followwhat is good.
Do not forsake me, O LORD ; O my God, 37do not be far from me!
22Make38haste to help me, O Lord, 39my salvation !
