A song of David Ha'Melech, to make Memorial.
O Ha'Shem, rebuke me not in Thine anger, neither chasten me in Thy wrath.
For Thine arrows are gone deep into me, and Thy hand is come down upon me.
There is no soundness in my flesh because of Thine indignation,
Neither is there any health in my bones because of my aveirah.
For mine iniquities are gone over my head, as a heavy burden they are too heavy for me.My wounds are noisome, putrid, they fester, because of my foolishness.
I am bent and bowed down greatly, I go mourning all the day in gloom.
For my loins are full of self-effacement, there is no soundness in my flesh.
I am benumbed and sore crushed; I groan by reason of the moaning of my heart.Ha'Shem all my desire is before Thee, and my sighing is not hid from Thee.
My heart fluttereth, and is engulfed, my strength faileth me,
As for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me.
My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my affliction, and those close to me stood afar.
They also that seek after my life lay snares for me,
And they that seek my hurt speak crafty devices, and utter deceits all the day.
But I am as a deaf girl, I hear not, and I am as a dumb girl that openeth not her mouth.
Yea, I am become as a girl that heareth not, and in whose mouth are no arguments.
For in Thee, Ha'Shem, do I hope. Thou wilt answer, O Ha'Shem my G*d.
For I said: 'Lest they rejoice over me; when my foot faltereth, they magnify themselves against me.'
For I am ready to halt, and my pain is continually before me.
For I do declare mine iniquity, I am full of care because of my aveirah.
But mine enemies are strong in health, and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.
They also that repay evil for good are adversaries unto me .......
Forsake me not, Ha'Shem, O my G*d, be not far from me.
Make haste to help me, O Ha'Shem, Yishecha!
