O Lord, don't rebuke me in your wrath

The LORD, don't rebuke me in your wrath,neither chasten me in your hot displeasure. +
For your arrows have pierced me,your hand presses hard on me. +
There is no soundness in my flesh because of your indignation,neither is there any health in my bones because of my sin.
For my iniquities have gone over my head.As a heavy burden, they are too heavy for me. +
My wounds are loathsome and corrupt,because of my foolishness. +
I am pained and bowed down greatly.I go mourning all day long.
For my waist is filled with burning.There is no soundness in my flesh.
I am faint and severely bruised.I have groaned by reason of the anguish of my heart.
Lord, all my desire is before you.My groaning is not hidden from you. +
My heart throbs.My strength fails me.As for the light of my eyes, it has also left me. +
My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my plague.My kinsmen stand far away. +
They also who seek after my life lay snares.Those who seek my hurt speak mischievous things,and meditate deceits all day long. +
But I, as a deaf man, don't hear.I am as a mute man who doesn't open his mouth. +
Yes, I am as a man who doesn't hear,in whose mouth are no reproofs.
For in you, The LORD, do I hope.You will answer, Lord my God. +
For I said, "Don't let them gloat over me,or exalt themselves over me when my foot slips."
For I am ready to fall.My pain is continually before me.
For I will declare my iniquity.I will be sorry for my sin. +
But my enemies are vigorous and many.Those who hate me without reason are numerous. +
They who also render evil for good are adversaries to me,because I follow what is good.
Don't forsake me, The LORD.My God, don't be far from me. +
Hurry to help me,Lord, my salvation.
