New International Version
7 “But now, Lord, what do I look for?
My hope is in you.(A)
8 Save me(B) from all my transgressions;(C)
do not make me the scorn(D) of fools.
9 I was silent;(E) I would not open my mouth,(F)
for you are the one who has done this.(G)
10 Remove your scourge from me;
I am overcome by the blow(H) of your hand.(I)
11 When you rebuke(J) and discipline(K) anyone for their sin,
you consume(L) their wealth like a moth(M)—
surely everyone is but a breath.(N)
