Psalm 88

88:1 A song or Psalme for the sonnes of Korah, to the chiefe Musician vpon Mahalath Leannoth, Maschil of Heman the Ezrahite. O Lord God of my saluation, I haue cried day and night before thee. 88:2 Let my prayer come before thee: incline thine eare vnto my cry. 88:3 For my soule is full of troubles: and my life draweth nigh vnto the graue. 88:4 I am counted with them that go downe into the pit: I am as a man that hath no strength. 88:5 Free among the dead, like the slaine that lie in the graue, whom thou remembrest no more: and they are cut off from thy hand. 88:6 Thou hast laid me in the lowest pit: in darkenesse, in the deepes. 88:7 Thy wrath lieth hard vpon me: and thou hast afflicted me with all thy waues. Selah. 88:8 Thou hast put away mine acquaintance farre from mee: thou hast made me an abomination vnto them: I am shut vp, and I cannot come forth. 88:9 Mine eye mourneth by reason of affliction, Lord, I haue called daily vpon thee: I haue stretched out my hands vnto thee. 88:10 Wilt thou shew wonders to the dead shal the dead arise and praise thee Selah. 88:11 Shall thy louing kindnesse be declared in the graue or thy faithfulnesse in destruction 88:12 Shall thy wonders be knowen in the darke and thy righteousnesse in the land of forgetfulnesse 88:13 But vnto thee haue I cried, O Lord, and in the morning shall my prayer preuent thee. 88:14 Lord, why castest thou off my soule why hidest thou thy face from me 88:15 I am afflicted and ready to die, from my youth vp: while I suffer thy terrours, I am distracted. 88:16 Thy fierce wrath goeth ouer me: thy terrours haue cut me off. 88:17 They came round about mee daily like water: they compassed mee about together. 88:18 Louer and friend hast thou put farre from me: and mine acquaintance into darkenesse.
