Psalms 88

A prayer containing a grievous complaint.

Psalms 88:1 {A Song, a Psalm for the sons of Korah. To the chief Musician. Upon Mahalath Leannoth. An instruction. Of Heman the Ezrahite.} Jehovah, God of my salvation, I have cried by day [and] in the night before thee. Psalms 88:2 Let my prayer come before thee; incline thine ear unto my cry. Psalms 88:3 For my soul is full of troubles, and my life draweth nigh to Sheol. Psalms 88:4 I am reckoned with them that go down into the pit; I am as a man that hath no strength: Psalms 88:5 Prostrate among the dead, like the slain that lie in the grave; whom thou rememberest no more, and who 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 fury lieth hard upon me, and thou hast afflicted [me] with all thy waves. Selah. Psalms 88:8 Thou hast put my familiar friends 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 consumeth by reason of affliction. Upon thee, Jehovah, have I called every day; I have stretched out my hands unto thee. Psalms 88:10 Wilt thou do wonders to the dead? shall the shades arise and praise thee? Selah. Psalms 88:11 Shall thy loving-kindness be declared in the grave? 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 as for me, Jehovah, I cry unto thee, and in the morning my prayer cometh before thee. Psalms 88:14 Why, O Jehovah, castest thou off my soul? [why] hidest thou thy face from me? Psalms 88:15 I am afflicted and expiring from my youth up; I suffer thy terrors, [and] I am distracted. Psalms 88:16 Thy fierce anger hath gone over me; thy terrors have brought me to nought: Psalms 88:17 They have surrounded me all the day like water; they have compassed me about together. Psalms 88:18 Lover and associate hast thou put far from me: my familiar friends are darkness.
