Psalms 88

A prayer containing a grievous complaint.

Psalms 88:1 {A song, the psalme of the sonnes of Corach, to the chiefe musition vpon Mahalath Leannoth, a wise instruction of Heman the Ezrahite.} O God the Lorde of my saluation, I crye day and night before thee: Psalms 88:2 let my prayer enter into thy presence, encline thyne eare vnto my crying. Psalms 88:3 For my soule is full of miserie: and my life toucheth the graue. Psalms 88:4 I am counted as one of them that go downe vnto the pit: and I am nowe become a man that hath no strength. Psalms 88:5 I am free among the dead: like such as beyng kylled lye in a graue, whom thou remembrest no more, and are cut away from thy hande. Psalms 88:6 Thou hast layde me in the lowest pit: in darknes and in deepenes. Psalms 88:7 Thyne indignation sore presseth me: and thou hast vexed me with all thy stormes. Selah. Psalms 88:8 Thou hast put away myne acquaintaunce farre from me, and made me to be abhorred of them: I am shut vp, I can not get foorth. Psalms 88:9 My sight fayleth through my affliction O God: I haue called dayly vpon thee, I haue stretched out mine handes vnto thee. Psalms 88:10 Wylt thou worke a miracle amongst the dead? or shal the dead rise vp againe [and] acknowledge thee? Selah. Psalms 88:11 Shall thy louing kindnes be talked of in the graue? or thy faythfulnes in destruction? Psalms 88:12 Shall thy wonderous workes be knowen in the darke? and thy righteousnes in the lande of forgetfulnes? Psalms 88:13 But vnto thee do I crye O God: and my prayer commeth early in the morning before thee. Psalms 88:14 O God, why abhorrest thou my soule: and [why] hidest thou thy face from me? Psalms 88:15 I am in miserie, I labour euen from my youth with the panges of death: I haue suffered thy terrours, [and] I am styll in doubt. Psalms 88:16 Thyne indignation hath gone ouer me: and thy terrours haue vndone me. Psalms 88:17 They came rounde about me dayly lyke water: and compassed me altogether on euery syde. Psalms 88:18 Thou hast put a way farre from me my frende and neighbour: [thou hast hid] mine acquaintaunce out of sight.
