And the terrors of Sheol came upon me;
I found distress and sorrow.
The cords of death encompassed me,
And the torrents of ungodliness terrified me.

In dark places, in the depths.

A man of sorrows and acquainted with grief;

And He answered me.
I cried for help from the depth of Sheol;
You heard my voice.
