Psalm 38


   1 PSALMUS. David. Ad commemorandum.
   2 Domine, ne in furore tuo arguas me neque in ira tua corripias me,
   3 quoniam sagittae tuae infixae sunt mihi, et descendit super me manus tua.
   4 Non est sanitas in carne mea a facie indignationis tuae, non est pax ossibus meis a facie peccatorum meorum.
   5 Quoniam iniquitates meae supergressae sunt caput meum et sicut onus grave gravant me nimis. -
   6 Putruerunt et corrupti sunt livores mei a facie insipientiae meae.
   7 Inclinatus sum et incurvatus nimis; tota die contristatus ingrediebar.
   8 Quoniam lumbi mei impleti sunt ardoribus, et non est sanitas in carne mea.
   9 Afflictus sum et humiliatus sum nimis, rugiebam a gemitu cordis mei.
   10 Domine, ante te omne desiderium meum, et gemitus meus a te non est absconditus.
   11 Palpitavit cor meum, dereliquit me virtus mea, et lumen oculorum meorum, et ipsum non est mecum.
   12 Amici mei et proximi mei procul a plaga mea steterunt, et propinqui mei de longe steterunt.
   13 Et laqueos posuerunt, qui quaerebant animam meam; et, qui requirebant mala mihi, locuti sunt insidias et dolos tota die meditabantur.
   14 Ego autem tamquam surdus non audiebam et sicut mutus non aperiens os suum;
   15 et factus sum sicut homo non audiens et non habens in ore suo redargutiones.
   16 Quoniam in te, Domine, speravi, tu exaudies, Domine Deus meus.
   17 Quia dixi: "Ne quando supergaudeant mihi; dum commoventur pedes mei, magnificantur super me".
   18 Quoniam ego in lapsum paratus sum, et dolor meus in conspectu meo semper.
   19 Quoniam iniquitatem meam annuntiabo et sollicitus sum de peccato meo.
   20 Inimici autem mei vivunt et confirmati sunt; et multiplicati sunt, qui oderunt me inique.
   21 Retribuentes mala pro bonis detrahebant mihi, pro eo quod sequebar bonitatem.
   22 Ne derelinquas me, Domine; Deus meus, ne discesseris a me.
   23 Festina in adiutorium meum, Domine, salus mea.

King James Version

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