Psalm 38

A Penitent Sufferer’s Plea for Healing

A Psalm of David, for the memorial offering.
1Lord, do not rebuke me in your anger,
   or discipline me in your wrath.
2 For your arrows have sunk into me,
   and your hand has come down on me.


3 There is no soundness in my flesh
   because of your indignation;
there is no health in my bones
   because of my sin.
4 For my iniquities have gone over my head;
   they weigh like a burden too heavy for me.


5 My wounds grow foul and fester
   because of my foolishness;
6 I am utterly bowed down and prostrate;
   all day long I go around mourning.
7 For my loins are filled with burning,
   and there is no soundness in my flesh.
8 I am utterly spent and crushed;
   I groan because of the tumult of my heart.


9 O Lord, all my longing is known to you;
   my sighing is not hidden from you.
