O LORD [H3068] God [H430] of my salvation [H3444] , I have cried [H6817] day [H3117] [and] night [H3915] before thee:(for the sons: or, of the sons)(Maschil: or, A Psalm of Heman the Ezrahite, giving instruction)
88:2 Let my prayer [H8605] come [H935] before [H6440] thee: incline [H5186] thine ear [H241] unto my cry [H7440] ;
88:3 For my soul [H5315] is full [H7646] of troubles [H7451] : and my life [H2416] draweth nigh [H5060] unto the grave [H7585] .
88:4 I am counted [H2803] with them that go down [H3381] into the pit [H953] : I am as a man [H1397] [that hath] no strength [H353] :
88:5 Free [H2670] among the dead [H4191] , like the slain [H2491] that lie [H7901] in the grave [H6913] , whom thou rememberest [H2142] no more: and they are cut off [H1504] from thy hand [H3027] .(from: or, by)
88:6 Thou hast laid [H7896] me in the lowest [H8482] pit [H953] , in darkness [H4285] , in the deeps [H4688] .
88:7 Thy wrath [H2534] lieth hard [H5564] upon me, and thou hast afflicted [H6031] [me] with all thy waves [H4867] . Selah [H5542] .
88:8 Thou hast put away [H7368] mine acquaintance [H3045] far [H7368] from me; thou hast made [H7896] me an abomination [H8441] unto them: [I am] shut up [H3607] , and I cannot come forth [H3318] .
88:9 Mine eye [H5869] mourneth [H1669] by reason of affliction [H6040] : LORD [H3068] , I have called [H7121] daily [H3117] upon thee, I have stretched out [H7849] my hands [H3709] unto thee.
88:10 Wilt thou shew [H6213] wonders [H6382] to the dead [H4191] ? shall the dead [H7496] arise [H6965] [and] praise [H3034] thee? Selah [H5542] .
88:11 Shall thy lovingkindness [H2617] be declared [H5608] in the grave [H6913] ? [or] thy faithfulness [H530] in destruction [H11] ?
88:12 Shall thy wonders [H6382] be known [H3045] in the dark [H2822] ? and thy righteousness [H6666] in the land [H776] of forgetfulness [H5388] ?
88:13 But unto thee have I cried [H7768] , O LORD [H3068] ; and in the morning [H1242] shall my prayer [H8605] prevent [H6923] thee.
88:14 LORD [H3068] , why castest thou off [H2186] my soul [H5315] ? [why] hidest [H5641] thou thy face [H6440] from me?
88:15 I [am] afflicted [H6041] and ready to die [H1478] from [my] youth [H5290] up: [while] I suffer [H5375] thy terrors [H367] I am distracted [H6323] .
88:16 Thy fierce wrath [H2740] goeth over [H5674] me; thy terrors [H1161] have cut me off [H6789] .
88:17 They came round about [H5437] me daily [H3117] like water [H4325] ; they compassed [H5362] me about together [H3162] .(daily: or, all the day)
88:18 Lover [H157] and friend [H7453] hast thou put far [H7368] from me, [and] mine acquaintance [H3045] into darkness [H4285] .
