88:2 \88:1\ O LORD God of my salvation, I have cried day [and] night before thee:
88:3 \88:2\Let my prayer come before thee: incline thine ear unto my cry;
88:4 \88:3\For my soul is full of troubles: and my life draweth nigh unto the grave.
88:5 \88:4\I am counted with them that go down into the pit: I am as a man [that hath] no strength:
88:6 \88:5\Free among the dead, like the slain that lie in the grave, whom thou rememberest no more: and they are cut off from thy hand.
88:7 \88:6\Thou hast laid me in the lowest pit, in darkness, in the deeps.
88:8 \88:7\Thy wrath lieth hard upon me, and thou hast afflicted [me] with all thy waves. Selah.
88:9 \88:8\Thou hast put away mine acquaintance far from me; thou hast made me an abomination unto them: [I am] shut up, and I cannot come forth.
88:10 \88:9\Mine eye mourneth by reason of affliction: LORD, I have called daily upon thee, I have stretched out my hands unto thee.
88:11 \88:10\Wilt thou shew wonders to the dead? shall the dead arise [and] praise thee? Selah.
88:12 \88:11\Shall thy lovingkindness be declared in the grave? [or] thy faithfulness in destruction?
88:13 \88:12\Shall thy wonders be known in the dark? and thy righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?
88:14 \88:13\But unto thee have I cried, O LORD; and in the morning shall my prayer prevent thee.
88:15 \88:14\LORD, why castest thou off my soul? [why] hidest thou thy face from me?
88:16 \88:15\I [am] afflicted and ready to die from [my] youth up: [while] I suffer thy terrors I am distracted.
88:17 \88:16\Thy fierce wrath goeth over me; thy terrors have cut me off.
88:18 \88:17\They came round about me daily like water; they compassed me about together.
88:19 \88:18\Lover and friend hast thou put far from me, [and] mine acquaintance into darkness.
