    Psalms 38
    King James Version

    1 O Lord, rebuke me not in thy wrath:
    neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.​
    2 For thine arrows stick fast in me,
    and thy hand presseth me sore.​

    There is no soundness in my flesh
    because of thine anger;
    neither is there any rest in my bones
    because of my sin.​
    4 For mine iniquities are gone over mine head:
    as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me.​
    5 My wounds stink and are corrupt
    because of my foolishness.​

    I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly;
    I go mourning all the day long.​
    7 For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease:
    and there is no soundness in my flesh.​
    8 I am feeble and sore broken:
    I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart.​

    Lord, all my desire is before thee;
    and my groaning is not hid from thee.​
    10 My heart panteth, my strength faileth me:
    as for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me.​

    My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my sore;
    and my kinsmen stand afar off.​
    12 They also that seek after my life lay snares for me:
    and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things,
    and imagine deceits all the day long.​

    But I, as a deaf man, heard not;
    and I was as a dumb man that openeth not his mouth.​
    14 Thus I was as a man that heareth not,
    and in whose mouth are no reproofs.​

    For in thee, O Lord, do I hope:
    thou wilt hear, O Lord my God.​
    16 For I said, Hear me, lest otherwise they should rejoice over me:
    when my foot slippeth, they magnify themselves against me.​

    For I am ready to halt,
    and my sorrow is continually before me.​
    18 For I will declare mine iniquity;
    I will be sorry for my sin.​
    19 But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong:
    and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.​
    20 They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries;
    because I follow the thing that good is.​

    Forsake me not, O Lord:
    O my God, be not far from me.​
    22 Make haste to help me,
    O Lord my salvation.

    Do Not Forsake Me O Lord

    Trusting and Obeying the God of Truth: Loving others within the limits that truth allows. "...not as though I wrote to thee a new commandment, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, so that you should walk in it." —2 John 1:5-6
