PSALMS · Chapter 88
88:1 O lord God of my salvation, I have cried day and night before you:
88:2 Let my prayer come before you: incline your ear unto my cry;
88:3 For my soul is full of troubles: and my life draws nigh unto the grave.
88:4 I am counted with them that go down into the pit: I am as a man that has no strength:
88:5 Free among the dead, like the slain that lie in the grave, whom you remember no more: and they are cut off from your hand.
88:6 You have laid me in the low pit, in darkness, in the deeps.
88:7 Your wrath lies hard upon me, and you have afflicted me with all your waves. Selah.
88:8 You have put away mine acquaintance far from me; you have made me an abomination unto them: I am shut up, and I cannot come forth.
88:9 Mine eye mourns by reason of affliction: LORD, I have called daily upon you, I have stretched out my hands unto you.
88:10 Will you show wonders to the dead? shall the dead arise and praise you? Selah.
88:11 Shall your loving kindness be declared in the grave? or your faithfulness in destruction?
88:12 Shall your wonders be known in the dark? and your righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?
88:13 But unto you have I cried, O LORD; and in the morning shall my prayer prevent you.
88:14 LORD, why cast you off my soul? why hide you your face from me?
88:15 I am afflicted and ready to die from my youth up: while I suffer your terrors I am distracted.
88:16 Your fierce wrath goes over me; your terrors have cut me off.
88:17 They came round about me daily like water; they compassed me about together.
88:18 Lover and friend have you put far from me, and mine acquaintance into darkness.
