My Wounds Stink Because of My Foolishness

A Psalm of David, to bring to remembrance.

to bring to remembrance
1 O LORD, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.

H · G · S  
2 For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me sore.

H · G · S  
3 There is no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger; neither is there any rest in my bones because of my sin.

H · G · S  
4 For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me.

H · G · S  gone over mine head
5 My wounds stink and are corrupt because of my foolishness.

H · G · S  
6 I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long.

H · G · S  
7 For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease: and there is no soundness in my flesh.

H · G · S  
8 I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart.

H · G · S  disquietness
9 Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee.

H · G · S  
10 My heart panteth, my strength faileth me: as for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me.

H · G · S  my strength faileth me
11 My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my sore; and my kinsmen stand afar off.

H · G · S  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.

H · G · S  
13 But I, as a deaf man, heard not; and I was as a dumb man that openeth not his mouth.

H · G · S  openeth not his mouth
14 Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth are no reproofs.

H · G · S  
15 For in thee, O LORD, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God.

H · G · S  
16 For I said, Hear me, lest otherwise they should rejoice over me: when my foot slippeth, they magnify themselves against me.

H · G · S  
17 For I am ready to halt, and my sorrow is continually before me.

H · G · S  
18 For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin.

H · G · S  
19 But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.

H · G · S  
20 They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow the thing that good is.

H · G · S  
21 Forsake me not, O LORD: O my God, be not far from me.

H · G · S  
22 Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation. H · G · S
