King James Bible : Psalms : Chapter 38


38:1
O lord, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.
38:2
For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me sore.
38:3
There is no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger; neither is there any rest in my bones because of my sin.
38:4
For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me.
38:5
My wounds stink and are corrupt because of my foolishness.
38:6
I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long.
38:7
For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease: and there is no soundness in my flesh.
38:8
I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart.
38:9
Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee.
38:10
My heart panteth, my strength faileth me: as for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me.
38:11
My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my sore; and my kinsmen stand afar off.
38:12
They also that seek after my life lay snares for me: and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and imagine deceits all the day long.
38:13
But I, as a deaf man, heard not; and I was as a dumb man that openeth not his mouth.
38:14
Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth are no reproofs.
38:15
For in thee, O LORD, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God.
38:16
For I said, Hear me, lest otherwise they should rejoice over me: when my foot slippeth, they magnify themselves against me.
38:17
For I am ready to halt, and my sorrow is continually before me.
38:18
For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin.
38:19
But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.
38:20
They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow the thing that good is.
38:21
Forsake me not, O LORD: O my God, be not far from me.
38:22
Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation.
