|A Song or Psalm for the sons of Korah, to the
upon Mahalath Leannoth, Maschil of Heman the Ezrahite.
|1||O LORD God of my
salvation, I have cried day and night before thee:
||cried day and night|
|2||Let my prayer come
before thee: incline thine ear unto my cry;
|3||For my soul is full
of troubles: and my life draweth nigh unto the grave.
|4||I am counted with
them that go down into the pit: I am as a man that hath no
|5||Free among the dead,
like the slain that lie in the grave, whom thou rememberest no more:
they are cut off from thy hand.
|6||Thou hast laid me in
the lowest pit, in darkness, in the deeps.
|7||Thy wrath lieth hard
upon me, and thou hast afflicted me with all thy waves. Selah.
|8||Thou hast put away
mine acquaintance far from me; thou hast made me an abomination unto
I am shut up, and I cannot come forth.
|9||Mine eye mourneth by
reason of affliction: LORD, I have called daily upon thee, I have
stretched out my hands unto thee.
|10||Wilt thou shew
wonders to the dead? shall the dead arise and praise thee?
lovingkindness be declared in the grave? or thy faithfulness in
|12||Shall thy wonders be
known in the dark? and thy righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?
|13||But unto thee have I
cried, O LORD; and in the morning shall my prayer prevent thee.
|14||LORD, why castest
thou off my soul? why hidest thou thy face from me?
||hidest thou thy face|
afflicted and ready to die from my youth up: while I
thy terrors I am distracted.
||from my youth up|
|16||Thy fierce wrath
goeth over me; thy terrors have cut me off.
|17||They came round
about me daily like water; they compassed me about together.
|18||Lover and friend
hast thou put far from me, and mine acquaintance into darkness.
