Psalms 38
New Living Translation
38[A psalm of David, asking God to remember him.] O LORD, don't rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your rage!H4210H1732H2142H3068H3198H7110H3256H2534 2Your arrows have struck deep, and your blows are crushing me.H2671H5181H3027H5181 3Because of your anger, my whole body is sick; my health is broken because of my sins.H4974H1320H6440H2195H7965H6106H6440H2403 4My guilt overwhelms me—it is a burden too heavy to bear.H5771H5674H7218H3515H4853H3513 5My wounds fester and stink because of my foolish sins.H2250H887H4743H6440H200 6I am bent over and racked with pain. All day long I walk around filled with grief.H5753H7817H3966H1980H6937H3117 7A raging fever burns within me, and my health is broken.H3689H4390H7033H4974H1320 8I am exhausted and completely crushed. My groans come from an anguished heart.H6313H3966H1794H7580H5100H3820 9You know what I long for, Lord; you hear my every sigh.H136H8378H585H5641 10My heart beats wildly, my strength fails, and I am going blind.H3820H5503H3581H5800H216H5869H1992H369 11My loved ones and friends stay away, fearing my disease. Even my own family stands at a distance.H157H7453H5975H5048H5061H7138H5975H7350 12Meanwhile, my enemies lay traps to kill me. Those who wish me harm make plans to ruin me. All day long they plan their treachery.H1245H5315H5367H1875H7451H1696H1942H1897H4820H3117 13But I am deaf to all their threats. I am silent before them as one who cannot speak.H2795H8085H483H6605H6310 14I choose to hear nothing, and I make no reply.H376H8085H6310H8433 15For I am waiting for you, O LORD. You must answer for me, O Lord my God.H3068H3176H6030H136H430 16I prayed, "Don't let my enemies gloat over me or rejoice at my downfall."H559H8055H7272H4131H1431 17I am on the verge of collapse, facing constant pain.H3559H6761H4341H8548 18But I confess my sins; I am deeply sorry for what I have done.H5046H5771H1672H2403 19I have many aggressive enemies; they hate me without reason.H341H2416H6105H8130H8267H7231 20They repay me evil for good and oppose me for pursuing good.H7999H7451H2896H7853H7291H2896 21Do not abandon me, O LORD. Do not stand at a distance, my God.H5800H3068H430H7368 22Come quickly to help me, O Lord my savior.H2363H5833H136H8668
