O LORD, the 1God of my salvation, I have 2cried out by day and in the nightbefore You.
Let my prayer3comebefore You; 4Incline Your ear to my cry !
For my 5soul has ahadenoughtroubles, And 6my life has drawnnear to bSheol.
I am reckonedamong those who 7godown to the pit ; I havebecome like a man8withoutstrength,
5cForsaken9among the dead, Like the slain who lie in the grave, Whom You remembernomore, And they are 10cutoff from Your hand.
You have put me in 11the lowestpit, In 12darkplaces, in the 13depths.
Your wrath14has rested upon me, And You have afflicted me with 15all Your waves. dSelah.
You have removed16my acquaintancesfar from me; You have made me an e17object of loathing to them; I am 18shut up and cannotgo out.
My 19eye has wastedawaybecause of affliction ; I have 20called upon You everyday, O LORD ; I have 21spread out my fhands to You.
Will You performwonders for the dead ? Will 22the gdepartedspiritsrise and praise You? Selah.
Will Your lovingkindness be declared in the grave, Your faithfulness in hAbaddon ?
Will Your wonders be madeknown in the 23darkness ? And Your irighteousness in the land of forgetfulness ?
But I, O LORD, have cried out 24to You for help, And 25in the morning my prayercomesbefore You.
O LORD, why26do You reject my soul ? Why do You 27hide Your face from me?
I was afflicted and 28about to die from my youth on; I suffer29Your terrors ; I am jovercome.
Your 30burninganger has passedover me; Your terrors have k31destroyed me.
They have 32surrounded me 33like waterallday long; They have 34encompassed me altogether.
You have removed35lover and friendfar from me; My acquaintances are in darkness.
