Chapter 38

1

 A Psalm of David, to bring to remembrance. O LORD, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure. 

2

 For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me sore. 

3

 [There is] no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger; neither [is there any] rest in my bones because of my sin. 

4

 For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me. 

5

 My wounds stink [and] are corrupt because of my foolishness. 

6

 I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long. 

7

 For my loins are filled with a loathsome [disease]: and [there is] no soundness in my flesh. 

8

 I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart. 

9

 Lord, all my desire [is] before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee. 

10

 My heart panteth, my strength faileth me: as for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me. 

11

 My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my sore; and my kinsmen stand afar off. 

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. 

13

 But I, as a deaf [man], heard not; and [I was] as a dumb man [that] openeth not his mouth. 

14

 Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth [are] no reproofs. 

15

 For in thee, O LORD, do I hope: thou wilt hear, 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. 

17

 For I [am] ready to halt, and my sorrow [is] continually before me. 

18

 For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin. 

19

 But mine enemies [are] lively, [and] they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied. 

20

 They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow [the thing that] good [is]. 

21

 Forsake me not, O LORD: O my God, be not far from me. 

22

 Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation.
