Your faithfulness in Abaddon? Will Your wonders be known in the darkness
or Your righteousness in the land of oblivion? But I call to You for help, Lord;

Why do You hide Your face from me? From my youth,
I have been afflicted and near death.

Your terrors destroy me. They surround me like water all day long;
they close in on me from every side. You have distanced loved one and neighbor from me;
darkness is my only friend.
