Psalms 88

He waiata, he himene ma nga tama a Koraha. Ki te tino kaiwhakatangi. Maharata Reanoto. He Makiri na Hemana Eterahi. E Ihowa, e te Atua o toku whakaoranga, he tangi taku ki tou aroaro i te ao, i te po. Kia tae atu taku inoi ki tou aroaro: whakatitahatia mai tou taringa ki taku tangi. Kua ki hoki toku wairua i te pouri, a e whakatata ana toku ora ki te reinga. Kua taua tahitia ahau me te hunga e heke ana ki te rua; e rite ana ahau ki te tangata kahore ona awhina! I maka ki waenga i nga tupapaku, me he tangata i patua e takoto ana i te urupa, kahore nei e maharatia e koe i muri; he mea momotu ke ratou na tou ringa. Kua whakatakotoria ahau e koe ki te rua i raro riro, ki te pouri, ki nga rire. E pehia ana ahau e tou riri, e pakia ana hoki e koe ki au ngaru katoa. (Hera. Kua whakamataratia atu e koe oku hoa kia tawhiti i ahau: kua meinga ahau e koe hei mea whakarihariha ki a ratou: kua uakina mai ahau, a kahore e puta ki waho. Kua he toku kanohi i te tangihanga: e karanga ana ahau ki a koe, e Ihowa, i nga ra katoa, kua totoro hoki oku ringa ki a koe.

10 Tera ranei koe e mahi merekara ki nga tupapaku? E ara koia te hunga kua mate ki te whakamoemiti ki a koe? (Hera. 11 Ka kauwhautia ranei tou aroha i roto i te urupa? tou pono i roto i te ngaromanga? 12 E matauria koia au mea whakamiharo i roto i te pouri? tou tika i te whenua o te warewaretanga? 13 Ko ahau ia kua karanga ki a koe, e Ihowa: a i te ata ka tae atu taku inoi ki tou aroaro. 14 He aha, e Ihowa, i panga ai toku wairua e koe? He aha i huna ai tou mata ki ahau? 15 No toku tamarikitanga ake ano i pakia ai ahau, i whakahemohemo ai: i ahau e pehia ana e au whakawehi, ka pororaru noa iho. 16 I tika tou riri nui ma runga i ahau; kua haukotia ahau e au mea whakawehi. 17 Ano he wai ratou ki te karapoti i ahau i te ra roa nei; hui tahi ratou ki te taiawhio i ahau. 18 Kua wehea e koe kia tawhiti atu i ahau te hoa hei aroha mai, me oku hoa ki roto ki te pouri.
