Psalm 38. Domine, ne in furore.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Eighth Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. PUT me not to rebuke, O Lord, in thine anger; *
    neither chasten me in thy heavy displeasure:
  2. For thine arrows stick fast in me, *
    and thy hand presseth me sore.
  3. There is no health in my flesh, because of thy displeasure; *
    neither is there any rest in my bones, by reason of my sin.
  4. For my wickednesses are gone over my head, *
    and are like a sore burden, too heavy for me to bear.
  5. My wounds stink, and are corrupt, *
    through my foolishness.
  6. I am brought into so great trouble and misery, *
    that I go mourning all the day long.
  7. For my loins are filled with a sore disease, *
    and there is no whole part in my body.
  8. I am feeble and sore smitten; *
    I have roared for the very disquietness of my heart.
  9. Lord, thou knowest all my desire; *
    and my groaning is not hid from thee.
  10. My heart panteth, my strength hath failed me, *
    and the light of mine eyes is gone from me.
  11. My lovers and my neighbours did stand looking upon my trouble, *
    and my kinsmen stood afar off.
  12. They also that sought after my life laid snares for me; *
    and they that went about to do me evil talked of wickedness, and imagined deceit all the day long.
  13. As for me, I was like a deaf man, and heard not; *
    and as one that is dumb, who doth not open his mouth.
  14. I became even as a man that heareth not, *
    and in whose mouth are no reproofs.
  15. For in thee, O Lord, have I put my trust; *
    thou shalt answer for me, O Lord my God.
  16. I have required that they, even mine enemies, should not triumph over me; *
    for when my foot slipt, they rejoiced greatly against me.
  17. And I truly am set in the plague, *
    and my heaviness is ever in my sight.
  18. For I will confess my wickedness, *
    and be sorry for my sin.
  19. But mine enemies live, and are mighty; *
    and they that hate me wrongfully are many in number.
  20. They also that reward evil for good are against me; *
    because I follow the thing that good is.
  21. Forsake me not, O Lord my God; *
    be not thou far from me.
  22. Haste thee to help me, *
    O Lord God of my salvation.
