Psalm 88

88:1 O Jehovah, the God of my salvation, I have cried day and night before thee. 88:2 Let my prayer enter into thy presence; Incline thine ear unto my cry. 88:3 For my soul is full of troubles, And my life draweth nigh unto Sheol. 88:4 I am reckoned with them that go down into the pit; I am as a man that hath no help, 88:5 Cast off among the dead, Like the slain that lie in the grave, Whom thou rememberest no more, And they are cut off from thy hand. 88:6 Thou hast laid me in the lowest pit, In dark places, in the deeps. 88:7 Thy wrath lieth hard upon me, And thou hast afflicted me with all thy waves. [Selah] 88:8 Thou hast put mine acquaintance far from me; Thou hast made me an abomination unto them: I am shut up, and I cannot come forth. 88:9 Mine eye wasteth away by reason of affliction: I have called daily upon thee, O Jehovah; I have spread forth my hands unto thee. 88:10 Wilt thou show wonders to the dead Shall they that are deceased arise and praise thee [Selah] 88:11 Shall thy lovingkindness be declared in the grave Or thy faithfulness in Destruction 88:12 Shall thy wonders be known in the dark And thy righteousness in the land of forgetfulness 88:13 But unto thee, O Jehovah, have I cried; And in the morning shall my prayer come before thee. 88:14 Jehovah, why castest thou off my soul Why hidest thou thy face from me 88:15 I am afflicted and ready to die from my youth up: While I suffer thy terrors I am distracted. 88:16 Thy fierce wrath is gone over me; Thy terrors have cut me off. 88:17 They came round about me like water all the day long; They compassed me about together. 88:18 Lover and friend hast thou put far from me, And mine acquaintance into darkness.
