1: Yahweh, don't rebuke me in your wrath, neither chasten me in your hot displeasure.
2: For your arrows have pierced me, your hand presses hard on me.
3: There is no soundness in my flesh because of your indignation, neither is there any health in my bones because of my sin.
4: For my iniquities have gone over my head. As a heavy burden, they are too heavy for me.
5: My wounds are loathsome and corrupt, because of my foolishness.
6: I am pained and bowed down greatly. I go mourning all day long.
7: For my waist is filled with burning. There is no soundness in my flesh.
8: I am faint and severely bruised. I have groaned by reason of the anguish of my heart.
9: Lord, all my desire is before you. My groaning is not hidden from you.
10: My heart throbs. My strength fails me. As for the light of my eyes, it has also left me.
11: My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my plague. My kinsmen stand far away.
12: They also who seek after my life lay snares. Those who seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and meditate deceits all day long.
13: But I, as a deaf man, don't hear. I am as a mute man who doesn't open his mouth.
14: Yes, I am as a man who doesn't hear, in whose mouth are no reproofs.
15: For in you, Yahweh, do I hope. You will answer, Lord my God.
16: For I said, "Don't let them gloat over me, or exalt themselves over me when my foot slips."
17: For I am ready to fall. My pain is continually before me.
18: For I will declare my iniquity. I will be sorry for my sin.
19: But my enemies are vigorous and many. Those who hate me without reason are numerous.
20: They who also render evil for good are adversaries to me, because I follow what is good.
21: Don't forsake me, Yahweh. My God, don't be far from me.
22: Hurry to help me, Lord, my salvation. Psalm 39 For the Chief Musician. For Jeduthun. A Psalm by David.
