 1  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.
