Psalm 88

88:1 A Song, a Psalm, by sons of Korah, to the Overseer, `Concerning the Sickness of Afflictions.' --An instruction, by Heman the Ezrahite. O Jehovah, God of my salvation, Daily I have cried, nightly before Thee, 88:2 My prayer cometh in before Thee, Incline Thine ear to my loud cry, 88:3 For my soul hath been full of evils, And my life hath come to Sheol. 88:4 I have been reckoned with those going down [to] the pit, I have been as a man without strength. 88:5 Among the dead--free, As pierced ones lying in the grave, Whom Thou hast not remembered any more, Yea, they by Thy hand have been cut off. 88:6 Thou hast put me in the lowest pit, In dark places, in depths. 88:7 Upon me hath Thy fury lain, And [with] all Thy breakers Thou hast afflicted. Selah. 88:8 Thou hast put mine acquaintance far from me, Thou hast made me an abomination to them, Shut up--I go not forth. 88:9 Mine eye hath grieved because of affliction, I called Thee, O Jehovah, all the day, I have spread out unto Thee my hands.  88:10 To the dead dost Thou do wonders Do Rephaim rise do they thank Thee Selah. 88:11 Is Thy kindness recounted in the grave Thy faithfulness in destruction 88:12 Are Thy wonders known in the darkness And Thy righteousness in the land of forgetfulness 88:13 And I, unto Thee, O Jehovah, I have cried, And in the morning doth my prayer come before Thee. 88:14 Why, O Jehovah, castest Thou off my soul Thou hidest Thy face from me. 88:15 I [am] afflicted, and expiring from youth, I have borne Thy terrors--I pine away. 88:16 Over me hath Thy wrath passed, Thy terrors have cut me off, 88:17 They have surrounded me as waters all the day, They have gone round against me together, 88:18 Thou hast put far from me lover and friend, Mine acquaintance [is] the place of darkness!
