1 Kin 4:31; 1 Chr 2:6; Psa.89..: titlethe Ezrahite.1 O Lord, the c God of my salvation,
I have d cried out by day and in the night before You.
2 Let my prayer e come before You;
f Incline Your ear to my cry!
3 For my g soul has ▼
▼ Or been satisfied withhad enough troubles,
And i my life has drawn near to ▼
▼ I.e. the nether worldSheol.
4 I am reckoned among those who k go down to the pit;
I have become like a man l without strength,
▼ Lit A freed one among the deadForsaken n among the dead,
Like the slain who lie in the grave,
Whom You remember no more,
And they are o cut off from Your hand.
6 You have put me in p the lowest pit,
In q dark places, in the r depths.
7 Your wrath s has rested upon me,
And You have afflicted me with t all Your waves. ▼
▼ Selah may mean: Pause, Crescendo or Musical interludeSelah.
8 You have removed v my acquaintances far from me;
You have made me an ▼
▼ Lit abomination to them, x object of loathing to them;
I am y shut up and cannot go out.
9 My z eye has wasted away because of affliction;
I have aa called upon You every day, O Lord;
I have ab spread out my ▼
▼ Lit palmshands to You.
10 Will You perform wonders for the dead?
Will ad the ▼
▼ Or ghosts, shadesdeparted spirits rise and praise You? Selah.
11 Will Your lovingkindness be declared in the grave,
Your faithfulness in ▼
▼ I.e. place of destructionAbaddon?
12 Will Your wonders be made known in the ag darkness?
And Your ▼
▼ I.e. faithfulness to His gracious promisesrighteousness in the land of forgetfulness?
13 But I, O Lord, have cried out ai to You for help,
And aj in the morning my prayer comes before You.
14 O Lord, why ak do You reject my soul?
Why do You al hide Your face from me?
15 I was afflicted and am about to die from my youth on;
I suffer an Your terrors; I am ▼
▼ Or embarrassedovercome.
16 Your ap burning anger has passed over me;
Your terrors have ▼
▼ Or silenced, ar destroyed me.
17 They have as surrounded me at like water all day long;
They have au encompassed me altogether.
18 You have removed av lover and friend far from me;
My acquaintances are in darkness.
