NASB — Psalms 38 — KJV

Prayer of a Suffering Penitent.

A Psalm of David, for a memorial.

  1 O LORD, arebuke me not in Your wrath,
  And chasten me not in Your burning anger.
  2 For Your aarrows have sunk deep into me,
  And bYour hand has pressed down on me.
  3 There is ano soundness in my flesh bbecause of Your indignation;
  There is no health cin my bones because of my sin.
  4 For my ainiquities are gone over my head;
  As a heavy burden they weigh too much for me.
  5 My Iwounds grow foul [and] fester
  Because of amy folly.
  6 I am bent over and agreatly bowed down;
  I bgo mourning all day long.
  7 For my loins are filled with aburning,
  And there is bno soundness in my flesh.
  8 I am abenumbed and Ibadly crushed;
  I IIbgroan because of the IIIagitation of my heart.

David moveth God to take compassion of his pitiful case.

1 ¶ [[A Psalm of David, to bring to remembrance.]] O LORD, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure. 2 For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me sore. 3 [There is] no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger; neither [is there any] rest 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 troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long. 7 For my loins are filled with a loathsome [disease]: and [there is] no soundness in my flesh. 8 I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart. 9 Lord, all my desire [is] before thee; and my groaning 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 lovers and my friends stand aloof from my sore; 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 mischievous things, and imagine deceits 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 Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth [are] no reproofs. 15 For in thee, O LORD, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God. 16 For I said, [Hear me], lest [otherwise] they should rejoice over me: when my foot slippeth, they magnify [themselves] against me. 17 For I [am] ready to halt, and my sorrow [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 [the thing that] good [is]. 21 Forsake me not, O LORD: O my God, be not far from me. 22 Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation.
