How many wrongs and sins have I committed?1 Show me my offense and my sin.2
Why do you hide your face3 and consider me your enemy?4
Will you torment5 a windblown leaf ?6 Will you chase7 after dry chaff ?8
For you write down bitter things against me and make me inherit the sins of my youth.9
You fasten my feet in shackles;10 you keep close watch on all my paths11 by putting marks on the soles of my feet.
"So man wastes away like something rotten, like a garment12 eaten by moths.13
