Therefore my spirit is overwhelmed within me;
My heart is appalled within me.
When I remember God, then I am disturbed;
When I sigh, then my spirit grows faint. Selah.
When my spirit was overwhelmed within me,
You knew my path.
In the way where I walk
They have hidden a trap for me.
“You would even cast lots for the orphans
And barter over your friend.
Turn to me and be gracious to me,
For I am lonely and afflicted.
Fear and trembling come upon me,
And horror has overwhelmed me.
From the end of the earth I call to You when my heart is faint;
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
A Prayer of the Afflicted when he is faint and pours out his complaint before the Lord.
Hear my prayer, O Lord!
And let my cry for help come to You.
For my days have been consumed in smoke,
And my bones have been scorched like a hearth.
My soul languishes for Your salvation;
I wait for Your word.
Then the waters would have engulfed us,
The stream would have swept over our soul;
And being in agony He was praying very fervently; and His sweat became like drops of blood, falling down upon the ground.
