Psalm 18:5-6 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

The ropes of Sheol entangled me;
the snares of death confronted me.
I called to the Lord in my distress,
and I cried to my God for help.
From His temple He heard my voice,
and my cry to Him reached His ears.

Psalm 86:13 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

13 For Your faithful love for me is great,
and You deliver my life from the depths of Sheol.

Psalm 88:1-7 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Psalm 88

A Cry of Desperation

A song. A psalm of the sons of Korah. For the choir director: according to Mahalath Leannoth. A Maskil of Heman the Ezrahite.

Lord, God of my salvation,
I cry out before You day and night.
May my prayer reach Your presence;
listen to my cry.

For I have had enough troubles,
and my life is near Sheol.
I am counted among those going down to the Pit.
I am like a man without strength,
abandoned[a] among the dead.
I am like the slain lying in the grave,
whom You no longer remember,
and who are cut off from Your care.[b]

You have put me in the lowest part of the Pit,
in the darkest places, in the depths.
Your wrath weighs heavily on me;
You have overwhelmed me with all Your waves.Selah

Isaiah 28:15 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

15 For you said, “We have cut a deal with Death,
and we have made an agreement with Sheol;
when the overwhelming scourge passes through,
it will not touch us,
because we have made falsehood our refuge
and have hidden behind treachery.”

Isaiah 38:18 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

18 For Sheol cannot thank You;
Death cannot praise You.
Those who go down to the Pit
cannot hope for Your faithfulness.
