Psalm 38

Psa 38:1 A Psalm of David, to bring to remembrance. O Jehovah, do not rebuke me in Your wrath, and do not chasten me in Your fury.
Psa 38:2 For Your arrows sink in me, and Your hand presses heavily on me.
Psa 38:3 There is no soundness in my flesh because of Your anger; nor peace in my bones because of my sin.
Psa 38:4 For my iniquities have passed over my head; as a heavy burden too heavy for me.
Psa 38:5 My wounds have putrefied and rotted because of my foolishness.
Psa 38:6 I am bent down, I am bowed down exceedingly; I went mourning all the day.
Psa 38:7 For my loins are filled with a burning, and there is no soundness in my flesh.
Psa 38:8 I am exceedingly benumbed and crushed. I howl from the groanings of my heart.
Psa 38:9 My Lord, all my desire is before You, and my sighing is not hidden from You.
Psa 38:10 My heart throbs; my power forsakes me! And the light of my eyes, they also are not with me.
Psa 38:11 My lovers and my friends stand apart from my stroke, and my neighbors have stood far off.
Psa 38:12 And those seeking my life lay a snare; yea, those seeking my evil speak ruin, and they utter deceits all the day long.
Psa 38:13 But like a deaf one I do not hear; and I am like a dumb one who does not open his mouth.
Psa 38:14 And I am as a man who is not hearing, and who has no rebukes in his mouth.
Psa 38:15 For I hope in You, O Jehovah; O Lord my God You will answer.
Psa 38:16 For I said, Lest they rejoice over me in the slipping of my foot; they exalt themselves over me.
Psa 38:17 For I am ready to fall and my pain is before me always.
Psa 38:18 For I will confess my perversity; I am anxious from my sin.
Psa 38:19 And my enemies are living; they are strong; and ones hating me have multiplied; they lie.
Psa 38:20 And those who repay evil for good, they attack me, because the good follows me.
Psa 38:21 O Jehovah, do not forsake me! O my God, do not be far from me.
Psa 38:22 Make haste to help me, O my Lord, my salvation.

On this day...
