Psalm 38

1  Rebuke me not, O Lord, in your anger, ♦︎
   neither chasten me in your heavy displeasure.
2  For your arrows have stuck fast in me ♦︎
   and your hand presses hard upon me.
3  There is no health in my flesh
      because of your indignation; ♦︎
   there is no peace in my bones because of my sin.
4  For my iniquities have gone over my head; ♦︎
   their weight is a burden too heavy to bear.
5  My wounds stink and fester ♦︎
   because of my foolishness.
6  I am utterly bowed down and brought very low; ♦︎
   I go about mourning all the day long.
7  My loins are filled with searing pain; ♦︎
   there is no health in my flesh.
8  I am feeble and utterly crushed; ♦︎
   I roar aloud because of the disquiet of my heart.
9  O Lord, you know all my desires ♦︎
   and my sighing is not hidden from you.
10  My heart is pounding, my strength has failed me; ♦︎
   the light of my eyes is gone from me.
11  My friends and companions stand apart from my affliction; ♦︎
   my neighbours stand afar off.
12  Those who seek after my life lay snares for me; ♦︎
   and those who would harm me whisper evil
      and mutter slander all the day long.
13  But I am like one who is deaf and hears not, ♦︎
   like one that is dumb, who does not open his mouth.
14  I have become like one who does not hear ♦︎
   and from whose mouth comes no retort.
15  For in you, Lord, have I put my trust; ♦︎
   you will answer me, O Lord my God.
16  For I said, ‘Let them not triumph over me, ♦︎
   those who exult over me when my foot slips.’
17  Truly, I am on the verge of falling ♦︎
   and my pain is ever with me.
18  I will confess my iniquity ♦︎
   and be sorry for my sin.
19  Those that are my enemies without any cause are mighty, ♦︎
   and those who hate me wrongfully are many in number.
20  Those who repay evil for good are against me, ♦︎
   because the good is what I seek.
21  Forsake me not, O Lord; ♦︎
   be not far from me, O my God.
22  Make haste to help me, ♦︎
   O Lord of my salvation.
