International Standard Version
8 You caused my acquaintances to shun me;[a]
you make me extremely abhorrent to them.
Restrained, I am unable to go out.
9 My eyes languish on account of my affliction;
all day long I call out to you, Lord,
I spread out my hands to you.
10 Can you perform wonders for the dead?
Can departed spirits stand up to praise you?
- Psalm 88:8 Lit. to be distant
