English Standard Version
Do Not Forsake Me, O Lord
A Psalm of David, (A)for the memorial offering.
3 There is (E)no soundness in my flesh
because of your indignation;
there is no health in my (F)bones
because of my sin.
4 For my (G)iniquities have gone over my head;
like a heavy burden, they are too heavy for me.
5 My wounds stink and fester
because of my foolishness,
6 I am (H)utterly bowed down and (I)prostrate;
all the day I (J)go about mourning.
7 For my sides are filled with burning,
and there is (K)no soundness in my flesh.
8 I am feeble and crushed;
I (L)groan because of the tumult of my heart.
9 O Lord, all my longing is before you;
my (M)sighing is not hidden from you.
10 My heart throbs; my strength fails me,
and (N)the light of my eyes—it also has gone from me.
11 My (O)friends and companions (P)stand aloof from my (Q)plague,
and my nearest kin (R)stand far off.
17 For I am (AB)ready to fall,
and my pain is ever before me.
18 I (AC)confess my iniquity;
I am (AD)sorry for my sin.
19 But my foes are vigorous, they are mighty,
and many are those who hate me (AE)wrongfully.
20 Those who (AF)render me evil for good
(AG)accuse me because I (AH)follow after good.
