17 My bones are pierced in me at night,
And my gnawing pains take no rest.

13 I have considered until morning—
Like a lion,
So He breaks all my bones;
From day until night You make an end of me.

Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am weak;
O Lord, (A)heal me, for my bones are troubled.
My soul also is greatly (B)troubled;
But You, O Lord—how long?

Return, O Lord, deliver me!
Oh, save me for Your mercies’ sake!
(C)For in death there is no remembrance of You;
In the grave who will give You thanks?

I am weary with my groaning;
[a]All night I make my bed swim;
I drench my couch with my tears.

  1. Psalm 6:6 Or Every night

19 Man is also chastened with pain on his (A)bed,
And with strong pain in many of his bones,
20 (B)So that his life abhors (C)bread,
And his soul [a]succulent food.
21 His flesh wastes away from sight,
And his bones stick out which once were not seen.

  1. Job 33:20 desirable

For Your arrows pierce me deeply,
And Your hand presses me down.

There is no soundness in my flesh
Because of Your anger,
Nor any health in my bones
Because of my sin.
For my iniquities have gone over my head;
Like a heavy burden they are too heavy for me.
My wounds are foul and festering
Because of my foolishness.

I am [a]troubled, I am bowed down greatly;
I go mourning all the day long.
For my loins are full of inflammation,
And there is no soundness in my flesh.
I am feeble and severely broken;
I groan because of the turmoil of my heart.

(A)When I lie down, I say, ‘When shall I arise,
And the night be ended?’
For I have had my fill of tossing till dawn.
