Psalm 38
Brenton's Septuagint Translation Par ▾ 

Do Not Rebuke Me in Your Anger

1(37:1) A Psalm of David for remembrance concerning the Sabbath-day. O Lord, rebuke me not in thy wrath, neither chasten me in thine anger.

2(37:2) For thy weapons are fixed in me, and thou hast pressed thy hand heavily upon me.

3(37:3) For there is no health in my flesh because of thine anger; there is no peace to my bones because of my sins.

4(37:4) For my transgressions have gone over mine head: they have pressed heavily upon me like a weighty burden.

5(37:5) My bruises have become noisome and corrupt, because of my foolishness.

6(37:6) I have been wretched and bowed down continually: I went with a mourning countenance all the day.

7(37:7) For my soul is filled with mockings; and there is no health in my flesh.

8(37:8) I have been afflicted and brought down exceedingly: I have roared for the groaning of my heart.

9(37:9) But all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hidden from thee.

10(37:10) My heart is troubled, my strength has failed me; and the light of mine eyes is not with me.

11(37:11) My friends and my neighbours drew near before me, and stood still; and my nearest of kin stood afar off.

12(37:12) While they pressed hard upon me that sought my soul: and they that sought my hurt spoke vanities, and devised deceits all the day.

13(37:13) But I, as a deaf man, heard not; and was as a dumb man not opening his mouth.

14(37:14) And I was as a man that hears not, and who has no reproofs in his mouth.

15(37:15) For I hoped in thee, O Lord: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God.

16(37:16) For I said, Lest mine enemies rejoice against me: for when my feet were moved, they spoke boastingly against me.

17(37:17) For I am ready for plagues, and my grief is continually before me.

18(37:18) For I will declare mine iniquity, and be distressed for my sin.

19(37:19) But mine enemies live, and are mightier than I: and they that hate me unjustly are multiplied.

20(37:20) They that reward evil for good slandered me; because I followed righteousness.

21(37:21) Forsake me not, O Lord my God: depart not from me.

22(37:22) Draw nigh to my help, O Lord of my salvation.
