Psalm 38

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