I am overwhelmed with troubles(A)
    and my life draws near to death.(B)
I am counted among those who go down to the pit;(C)
    I am like one without strength.(D)
I am set apart with the dead,
    like the slain who lie in the grave,
whom you remember no more,
    who are cut off(E) from your care.

You have put me in the lowest pit,
    in the darkest depths.(F)
Your wrath(G) lies heavily on me;
    you have overwhelmed me with all your waves.[a](H)
