New International Version
9 All my longings(A) lie open before you, Lord;
my sighing(B) is not hidden from you.
10 My heart pounds,(C) my strength fails(D) me;
even the light has gone from my eyes.(E)
11 My friends and companions avoid me because of my wounds;(F)
my neighbors stay far away.
12 Those who want to kill me set their traps,(G)
those who would harm me talk of my ruin;(H)
all day long they scheme and lie.(I)
13 I am like the deaf, who cannot hear,(J)
like the mute, who cannot speak;
14 I have become like one who does not hear,
whose mouth can offer no reply.
15 Lord, I wait(K) for you;
you will answer,(L) Lord my God.
16 For I said, “Do not let them gloat(M)
or exalt themselves over me when my feet slip.”(N)
