9 Lord, ·have mercy [be gracious], because I am in ·misery [distress; trouble]. My eyes ·are weak [waste away; are dim] from so much crying, ·and my whole being is tired [L as is my soul and my body] from grief. 10 My life is ending in ·sadness [sorrow], and my years are spent ·in crying [L with sighs/moans]. My ·troubles are using up my strength [L strength stumbles in my affliction/misery], and my bones ·are getting weaker [waste away]. 11 Because of all my ·troubles [distress], my enemies ·hate [scorn] me, and even my neighbors look down on me. When my ·friends [acquaintances] see me in public, they are afraid and ·run [flee]. 12 I am like a piece of a broken pot. I am forgotten as if I were dead.
