Psalms 88

A prayer containing a grievous complaint.

Psalms 88:1 {A Song, a Psalm of the sons of Korah; for the Chief Musician; set to Mahalath Leannoth. Maschil of Heman the Ezrahite.} O Jehovah, the God of my salvation, I have cried day and night before thee. Psalms 88:2 Let my prayer enter into thy presence; Incline thine ear unto my cry. Psalms 88:3 For my soul is full of troubles, And my life draweth nigh unto Sheol. Psalms 88:4 I am reckoned with them that go down into the pit; I am as a man that hath no help, Psalms 88:5 Cast off among the dead, Like the slain that lie in the grave, Whom thou rememberest no more, And they are cut off from thy hand. Psalms 88:6 Thou hast laid me in the lowest pit, In dark places, in the deeps. Psalms 88:7 Thy wrath lieth hard upon me, And thou hast afflicted me with all thy waves. Selah. Psalms 88:8 Thou hast put mine acquaintance far from me; Thou hast made me an abomination unto them: I am shut up, and I cannot come forth. Psalms 88:9 Mine eye wasteth away by reason of affliction: I have called daily upon thee, O Jehovah; I have spread forth my hands unto thee. Psalms 88:10 Wilt thou show wonders to the dead? Shall they that are deceased arise and praise thee? Selah. Psalms 88:11 Shall thy lovingkindness be declared in the grave? Or thy faithfulness in Destruction? Psalms 88:12 Shall thy wonders be known in the dark? And thy righteousness in the land of forgetfulness? Psalms 88:13 But unto thee, O Jehovah, have I cried; And in the morning shall my prayer come before thee. Psalms 88:14 Jehovah, why castest thou off my soul? Why hidest thou thy face from me? Psalms 88:15 I am afflicted and ready to die from my youth up: While I suffer thy terrors I am distracted. Psalms 88:16 Thy fierce wrath is gone over me; Thy terrors have cut me off. Psalms 88:17 They came round about me like water all the day long; They compassed me about together. Psalms 88:18 Lover and friend hast thou put far from me, And mine acquaintance into darkness.
