English Standard Version
7 O Lord, (A)you have deceived me,
and I was deceived;
(B)you are stronger than I,
and you have prevailed.
(C)I have become a laughingstock all the day;
everyone mocks me.
8 For whenever I speak, I cry out,
I shout, (D)“Violence and destruction!”
For (E)the word of the Lord has become for me
(F)a reproach and (G)derision all day long.
9 If I say, “I will not mention him,
or speak any more in his name,”
(H)there is in my heart as it were a burning fire
shut up in my bones,
and (I)I am weary with holding it in,
and I cannot.
