1

O lord, rebuke me not in your wrath: neither chasten me in your hot displeasure.

2

For yours arrows stick fast in me, and your hand presses me sore.

3

There is no soundness in my flesh because of yours 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 chaos of my heart.

9

Lord, all my desire is before you; and my groaning is not hid from you.

10

My heart pants, my strength fails 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 far 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 opens not his mouth.

14

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

15

For in you, O LORD, do I hope: you will hear, O Lord my God.

16

For I said, Hear me, lest otherwise they should rejoice over me: when my foot slips, 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.
