nor correct me in your burning anger.
your hand presses hard on me.
because of your indignation.
There is no wholeness in my bones
because of my sin.
Like a heavy burden, they are too heavy for me.
because of my foolishness.
I walk about wearing mourner’s clothing all day long.
There is no soundness in my flesh.
I roar due to the groaning of my heart.
And my groaning is not hidden from you.
And the light of my eyes, even that is not with me.
My relatives stand far away.
Those who seek my injury speak destructive things,
and they say deceitful things all day long.
I am like a mute man
who does not open his mouth.
yes, in his mouth are no reproofs.
You will answer, O Lord my God.
They magnified themselves over me when my foot slipped.
Yes, my pain is continually with me.
I am anxious concerning my sin.
Those treacherous people who hate me are numerous.
because I pursue what is good.
My God, do not be far from me.
O Lord, my salvation.
