O Lord, tyou have deceived me,

and I was deceived;

uyou are stronger than I,

and you have prevailed.

vI have become a laughingstock all the day;

everyone mocks me.

For whenever I speak, I cry out,

I shout, w“Violence and destruction!”

For xthe word of the Lord has become for me

ya reproach and yderision all day long.

If I say, “I will not mention him,

or speak any more in his name,”

zthere is in my heart as it were a burning fire

shut up in my bones,

and aI am weary with holding it in,

and I cannot.

10  bFor I hear many whispering.

cTerror is on every side!

“Denounce him! dLet us denounce him!”

say all my eclose friends,

fwatching for gmy fall.

“Perhaps he will be deceived;

then hwe can overcome him

and take our revenge on him.”
