Third Millennium Bible (TMB) New International Version (NIV)
1 <> O LORD, rebuke me not in Thy wrath, neither chasten me in Thy hot displeasure! 1 O LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your wrath.
2 For Thine arrows stick fast in me, and Thy hand presseth me sorely. 2 For your arrows have pierced me, and your hand has come down upon me.
3 There is no soundness in my flesh, because of Thine anger; neither is there any rest in my bones, because of my sin. 3 Because of your wrath there is no health in my body; my bones have no soundness because of my sin.
4 For mine iniquities have gone over mine head; as a heavy burden, they are too heavy for me. 4 My guilt has overwhelmed me like a burden too heavy to bear.
5 My wounds are foul and corrupt because of my foolishness. 5 My wounds fester and are loathsome because of my sinful folly.
6 I am troubled, I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long. 6 I am bowed down and brought very low; all day long I go about mourning.
7 For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease, and there is no soundness in my flesh. 7 My back is filled with searing pain; there is no health in my body.
8 I am feeble and sorely broken; I have groaned because of the disquiet of my heart. 8 I am feeble and utterly crushed; I groan in anguish of heart.
9 Lord, all my desires are known to Thee; and my groaning is not hidden from Thee. 9 All my longings lie open before you, O Lord; my sighing is not hidden from you.
10 My heart panteth, my strength faileth me; as for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me. 10 My heart pounds, my strength fails me; even the light has gone from my eyes.
11 My loved ones and my friends stand aloof from my sore, and my kinsmen stand afar off. 11 My friends and companions avoid me because of my wounds; my neighbors stay far away.
12 They also that seek after my life lay snares for me; and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and devise deceits all the day long. 12 Those who seek my life set their traps, those who would harm me talk of my ruin; all day long they plot deception.
13 But I, as a deaf man, heard not; and I was as a dumb man that openeth not his mouth. 13 I am like a deaf man, who cannot hear, like a mute, who cannot open his mouth;
14 Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth are no reproofs. 14 I have become like a man who does not hear, whose mouth can offer no reply.
15 For in Thee, O LORD, do I hope; Thou wilt hear, O Lord my God. 15 I wait for you, O LORD; you will answer, O Lord my God.
16 For I said, "Hear me, lest otherwise they should rejoice over me; when my foot slippeth, they magnify themselves against me." 16 For I said, "Do not let them gloat or exalt themselves over me when my foot slips."
17 For I am ready for halting, and my sorrow is continually before me. 17 For I am about to fall, and my pain is ever with me.
18 For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin. 18 I confess my iniquity; I am troubled by my sin.
19 But mine enemies are alive and they are strong; and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied. 19 Many are those who are my vigorous enemies; those who hate me without reason are numerous.
20 They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries, because I follow the thing that is good. 20 Those who repay my good with evil slander me when I pursue what is good.
21 Forsake me not, O LORD; O my God, be not far from me! 21 O LORD, do not forsake me; be not far from me, O my God.
22 Make haste to help me, O Lord, my salvation! 22 Come quickly to help me, O Lord my Savior.
