The Holy Bible, King James Version Revised

The Book of Psalms


O LORD, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot anger.
    2 For thine arrows sink deep in me, and thy hand presseth down upon me.
    3 There is no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger; neither is there any health 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 bowed down greatly and brought low; I go mourning all the day long.
    7 For my loins are filled with burning, and there is no soundness in my flesh.
    8 I am feeble and sore broken: I groan by reason of the disquietness of my heart.
    9 Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my sighing 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 friends and my companions stand aloof from my plague; 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 of my ruin, and devise treachery 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 Yea, I am as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth are no reproofs.
    15 For in thee, O LORD, do I hope: thou wilt answer, O Lord my God.
    16 For I said, May they not rejoice over me: for when my foot slippeth, they would magnify themselves against me.
    17 For I am ready to fall, and my pain 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 after that which is good.
    21 Forsake me not, O LORD: O my God, be not far from me.
    22 Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation.
