Psalms 38
A Psalm (sacred song about or to God) of David [Beloved], to bring to remembrance.
1O Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate], rebuke (reprimand; strongly warn; restrain) me not in youri wrath: neither chasten me in youri hot displeasure.
2For youri arrows stick fast in me, and youri hand presses me sore.
3 [There is] no soundness in my flesh because of youri anger; neither [is there any] rest in my bones because of my sin.
4For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me.
5My wounds stink [and] are corrupt because of my foolishness.
6I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long.
7For my loins (thigh and groin area; often used for the reproductive organs) are filled with a loathsome [disease]: and [there is] no soundness in my flesh.
8I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart.
9Lord-Adonai (The Father) [Greatest Above All Things], all my desire [is] before youi; and my groaning is not hid from youi.
10My heart pants, my strength fails me: as for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me.
11My lovers and my friends stand aloof (at a distance, but within view) from my sore; and my kinsmen stand afar off.
12They also that seek after my life lay snares [for me]: and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and imagine deceits all the day long.
13But I, as a deaf [man], heard not; and [I was] as a dumb man [that] opens not his mouth.
14Thus I was as a man that hears not, and in whose mouth [are] no reproofs.
15For in youi, O Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate], do I hope: youi will hear, O Lord-Adonai (The Father) [Greatest Above All Things] my God-Elohai [GOD].
16For I said, [Hear me], lest [otherwise] they should rejoice over me: when my foot slips, they magnify [themselves] against me.
17For I [am] ready to lame (crippled in the feet), and my sorrow [is] continually before me.
18For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin.
19But mine enemies [are] lively, [and] they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.
20They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow [the thing that] good [is].
21Forsake me not, O Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate]: O my God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], be not far from me.
22Make haste to help me, O Lord-Adonai (The Father) [Greatest Above All Things] my salvation.
