Psalms 88

A prayer containing a grievous complaint.

Psalms 88:1 {A Song, a Melody. For the Sons of Korah. To the Chief Musician. On "Mahalath." For alternate Song. An Instructive Psalm. By Heman the Ezrahite.} O Yahweh, God of my salvation, By day, have I made outcry, In the night, [also] before thee. Psalms 88:2 Let my prayer, come into thy presence, Bow down thine ear to my loud cry. Psalms 88:3 For my soul, is sated with misfortunes, And, my life—unto Hades, hath drawn near; Psalms 88:4 I am counted with them who descend into the pit, I have become as a man that is without help; Psalms 88:5 Among the dead, is my couch,—Like the slain that lie in the grave, Where thou rememberest them no more, Yea, they, from thy hand, are cut off; Psalms 88:6 Thou hast laid me, In the lowest pit, In dark places, In the deeps: Psalms 88:7 Upon me, hath rested thine indignation, And, with all thy breakers, hast thou caused affliction. [Selah.] Psalms 88:8 Thou hast far removed mine acquaintances from me,—Thou hast made me an abomination unto them, Shut up, and I cannot go forth! Psalms 88:9 Mine eye, hath dimmed through affliction; I have called upon thee, O Yahweh, all day long, I have spread out, unto thee, my hands. Psalms 88:10 For the dead, wilt thou perform a wonder? Or shall, the shades, arising, give thee thanks? [Selah.] Psalms 88:11 Shall Thy lovingkindness be recounted in the grave? Thy faithfulness, in destruction? Psalms 88:12 Shall any wonder of thine, be known in the dark? Or, thy righteousness, in the land of forgetfulness? Psalms 88:13 But, I, unto thee, O Yahweh, have cried for help, And, in the morning, my prayer will confront thee! Psalms 88:14 Wherefore, O Yahweh, shouldst thou reject my soul? shouldst thou hide thy face from me? Psalms 88:15 Afflicted have I been, and dying, from youth, I have borne the terror of thee—I shall be distracted! Psalms 88:16 Over me, have passed thy bursts of burning anger, The alarms of thee have put an end to me; Psalms 88:17 They have surrounded me like waters, all the day, They have come circling against me together: Psalms 88:18 Thou hast far removed from me, lover and friend, Mine acquaintances, are in darkness.
