Because of your wrath there is no health1 in my body; my bones2 have no soundness because of my sin.
My guilt has overwhelmed3 me like a burden too heavy to bear.45
My wounds5 fester and are loathsome6 because of my sinful folly.76
I am bowed down8 and brought very low; all day long I go about mourning.97
My back is filled with searing pain;10 there is no health11 in my body.
I am feeble and utterly crushed;12 I groan13 in anguish of heart.149
All my longings15 lie open before you, O Lord; my sighing16 is not hidden from you.
My heart pounds,17 my strength fails18 me; even the light has gone from my eyes.1911
My friends and companions avoid me because of my wounds;20 my neighbors stay far away.
Those who seek my life set their traps,21 those who would harm me talk of my ruin;22 all day long they plot deception.2313
I am like a deaf man, who cannot hear,24 like a mute, who cannot open his mouth;
