9  Have mercy on me, Lord, for I am in trouble; 
   my eye is consumed with sorrow,
      my soul and my body also.
10  For my life is wasted with grief,
      and my years with sighing; 
   my strength fails me because of my affliction,
      and my bones are consumed.
11  I have become a reproach to all my enemies
      and even to my neighbours,
      an object of dread to my acquaintances; 
   when they see me in the street they flee from me.
12  I am forgotten like one that is dead, out of mind; 
   I have become like a broken vessel.
13  For I have heard the whispering of the crowd;
      fear is on every side; 
   they scheme together against me,
      and plot to take my life.
14  But my trust is in you, O Lord. 
   I have said, ‘You are my God.
15  ‘My times are in your hand; 
   deliver me from the hand of my enemies,
      and from those who persecute me.
16  ‘Make your face to shine upon your servant, 
   and save me for your mercy’s sake.’
17  Lord, let me not be confounded
      for I have called upon you; 
   but let the wicked be put to shame;
      let them be silent in the grave.
18  Let the lying lips be put to silence 
   that speak against the righteous
      with arrogance, disdain and contempt.
