Prayer in Distress

1For the leader; with stringed instruments, “upon the eighth.”* A psalm of David.

I

2Do not reprove me in your anger, LORD, nor punish me in your wrath. g Ps 38, 2 . 3Have pity on me, LORD, for I am weak; heal me, LORD, for my bones are trembling. h Jer 17, 14–15 . 4In utter terror is my soul— and you, LORD, how long…? i Pss 13, 2–3; 74, 10; 89, 47 . * 5Turn, LORD, save my life; in your mercy* rescue me. 6For who among the dead remembers you? Who praises you in Sheol? j Pss 30, 10; 88, 11; 115, 17; Is 38, 18 . *

II

7I am wearied with sighing; all night long tears drench my bed; my couch is soaked with weeping. 8My eyes are dimmed with sorrow, worn out because of all my foes. k Pss 31, 10; 38, 11; 40, 13 .

9Away from me, all who do evil! l Ps 119, 115; Mt 7, 23; Lk 13, 27 . The LORD has heard my weeping. 10The LORD has heard my prayer; the LORD takes up my plea. 11My foes will be terrified and disgraced; all will fall back in sudden shame. m Pss 35, 4. 26; 40, 15; 71, 13 .
