10 My heart throbs, my strength fails me;
   as for the light of my eyes—it also has gone from me.
11 My friends and companions stand aloof from my affliction,
   and my neighbours stand far off.


12 Those who seek my life lay their snares;
   those who seek to hurt me speak of ruin,
   and meditate treachery all day long.


13 But I am like the deaf, I do not hear;
   like the mute, who cannot speak.
14 Truly, I am like one who does not hear,
   and in whose mouth is no retort.


15 But it is for you, O Lord, that I wait;
   it is you, O Lord my God, who will answer.
16 For I pray, ‘Only do not let them rejoice over me,
   those who boast against me when my foot slips.’


17 For I am ready to fall,
   and my pain is ever with me.
18 I confess my iniquity;
   I am sorry for my sin.
19 Those who are my foes without cause* are mighty,
   and many are those who hate me wrongfully.
20 Those who render me evil for good
   are my adversaries because I follow after good.


21 Do not forsake me, O Lord;
   O my God, do not be far from me;
22 make haste to help me,
   O Lord, my salvation.
