Save me1 from all my transgressions;2 do not make me the scorn3 of fools.
I was silent;4 I would not open my mouth,5 for you are the one who has done this.610
Remove your scourge from me; I am overcome by the blow7 of your hand.811
You rebuke9 and discipline10 men for their sin; you consume11 their wealth like a moth12-- each man is but a breath.13 "Selah"
"Hear my prayer, O LORD, listen to my cry for help;14 be not deaf15 to my weeping.16 For I dwell with you as an alien,17 a stranger,18 as all my fathers were.1913
Look away from me, that I may rejoice again before I depart and am no more."20
