Domine, ne in furore tuo arguas me, neque in ira tua corripias me; quoniam saggitae tuae infixae sunt mihi, et confirmasti super me manum tuam. Non est sanitas in carne mea, a facie irae tuae; non est pax ossibus meis, a facie peccatorum meorum. Quoniam iniquitates meae supergressae sunt caput meum, et sicut onus grave gravatae sunt super me. Putruerunt et corruptae sunt cicatrices meae, a facie insipientiae meae. Miser factus sum et curvatus sum usque in finem; tota die contristatus ingrediebar. Quoniam lumbi mei impleti sunt illusionibus, et non est sanitas in carne mea. Afflictus sum, et humiliatus sum nimis; rugiebam a gemitu cordis mei. Domine, ante te omne desiderium meum, et gemitus meus a te non est absconditus. Cor meum conturbatum est in me, dereliquit me virtus mea, et lumen oculorum meorum, et ipsum non est mecum. Amici mei et proximi mei adversum me appropinquaverunt, et steterunt; et qui iuxta me erant de longe steterunt et vim faciebant qui quaerebant animam meam. Et qui inquirebant mala mihi, locuti sunt vanitates, et dolos tota die meditabantur. Ego autem, tanquam surdus, non audiebam; et sicut mutus non aperiens os suum. Et factus sum sicut homo non audiens, et non habens in ore suo redargutiones. Quoniam in te, Domine, speravi; tu exaudies me, Domine Deus meus. Quia dixi: Nequando supergaudeant mihi inimici mei; et dum commoventur pedes mei, super me magna locuti sunt. Quoniam ego in flagella paratus sum, et dolor meus in conspectu meo semper. Quoniam iniquitatem meam annuntiabo, et cogitabo pro peccato meo. Inimici autem mei vivunt, et confirmati sunt super me: et multiplicati sunt qui oderunt me inique. Qui retribuunt mala pro bonis detrahebant mihi, quoniam sequebar bonitatem. Ne derelinquas me, Domine Deus meus; ne discesseris a me. Intende in adiutorium meum, Domine, Deus salutis meae. Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto. Sicut erat in principio, et nunc et semper, et in saecula saeculorum. Amen.
O Lord, rebuke me not in thy wrath, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure; 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. For mine iniquities are gone over mine head, as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me. 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. For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease, and there is no soundness in my flesh. 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. 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. They also that seek after my life lay snares for me; and they that seek my hurt speak mischevious 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. 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 me, O Lord my God. 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. For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin. But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong; and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied. They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries, because I follow the thing that is good. Forsake me not, O Lord my God; be not far from me. Make haste to help me, O Lord, God of my salvation. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be. Amen.
