10 For my life is spent with sorrow,
    and my years with sighing;
my strength fails because of my iniquity,
    and (A)my bones waste away.

11 Because of all my adversaries I have become (B)a reproach,
    especially to my (C)neighbors,
and an object of dread to my acquaintances;
    those who see me in the street (D)flee from me.
12 I have been (E)forgotten like one who is dead;
    I have become like (F)a broken vessel.
13 For I (G)hear the whispering of many—
    terror on every side!—
(H)as they scheme together against me,
    as they plot to take my life.

14 But I (I)trust in you, O Lord;
    I say, “You are my God.”
15 My (J)times are in your hand;
    (K)rescue me from the hand of my enemies and from my persecutors!
16 (L)Make your face shine on your servant;
    save me in your steadfast love!
