I will leave my complaint bupon myself;
I will speak cin the bitterness of my soul.
2 I will say unto God, Do not dcondemn me;
Shew me wherefore thou contendest with me.
3 eIs it good unto thee that thou shouldest oppress,
And shine upon the counsel of the wicked?
4 gHast thou eyes of flesh?
5 Are thy days as the days of iman?
Are thy years as man’s days,
And searchest after my sin?
7 †Thou knowest that I am not wicked;
And there is none that can deliver out of thine hand.
lTogether round about; yet thou dost destroy me.
9 Remember, I beseech thee, that thou hast made me as mthe clay;
And nwilt thou bring me into dust again?
10 Hast thou not opoured me out as milk,
And curdled me like cheese?
And hast †fenced me with bones and sinews.
And thy visitation hath preserved my spirit.
I know that pthis is with thee.
14 If I sin, then thou qmarkest me,
And rthou wilt not acquit me from mine iniquity.
15 sIf I be wicked, woe unto me;
I am full of confusion; therefore xsee thou mine affliction;
16 For it increaseth. Thou huntest me as ya fierce lion:
And again thou shewest thyself marvellous upon me.
17 Thou renewest ||thy witnesses against me,
And increasest thine indignation upon me;
zChanges and war are against me.
18 aWherefore then hast thou brought me forth out of the womb?
Oh that I had given up the ghost, and no eye had seen me!
19 bI should have been as though I had not been;
I cshould have been carried from the womb to the grave.
And let me alone, that I may ftake comfort a little,
21 gBefore I go whence I shall not return,
And of ithe shadow of death, without any order,
And where the light is as ldarkness.
