Psalms 881 A Song, a Psalm of the sons of Korah; for the Chief Musician; set to Mahalath ▼ Leannoth. Maschil of Heman the Ezrahite. O Jehovah, the God of my salvation, I have cried day and night before thee. ▼
▼ 1) Or for singing2 Let my prayer enter into thy presence; Incline thine ear unto my cry. 3 For my soul is full of troubles, And my life draweth nigh unto Sheol. 4 I am reckoned with them that go down into the pit; I am as a man that hath no help, 5 Cast ▼ off among the dead, Like the slain that lie in the grave, Whom thou rememberest no more, And they are cut off from thy hand. ▼
▼ 1) Or away6 Thou hast laid me in the lowest pit, In dark places, in the deeps. 7 Thy wrath lieth hard upon me, And thou hast afflicted me with all thy waves. [[Selah 8 Thou hast put mine acquaintance far from me; Thou hast made me an abomination unto them: I am shut up, and I cannot come forth. 9 Mine eye wasteth away by reason of affliction: I have called daily upon thee, O Jehovah; I have spread forth my hands unto thee. 10 Wilt thou show wonders to the dead? Shall ▼ they that are deceased arise and praise thee? [[Selah ▼
▼ 1) Or the shades ; Heb Rephaim11 Shall thy lovingkindness be declared in the grave? Or thy faithfulness in ▼ Destruction? ▼
▼ 1) Heb Abaddon ; See Job 26:612 Shall thy wonders be known in the dark? And thy righteousness in the land of forgetfulness? 13 But unto thee, O Jehovah, have I cried; And in the morning shall my prayer come before thee. 14 Jehovah, why castest thou off my soul? Why hidest thou thy face from me? 15 I am afflicted and ready to die from my youth up: While I suffer thy terrors I am distracted. 16 Thy fierce wrath is gone over me; Thy terrors have cut me off. 17 They came round about me like water all the day long; They compassed me about together. 18 Lover and friend hast thou put far from me, And mine acquaintance ▼ into darkness. ▼
▼ 1) Or are darkness
