The King James Version Bible

Psalms 88:1-10

  1. O LORD God of my salvation, I have cried day and night before thee:

  2. Let my prayer come before thee: incline thine ear unto my cry;

  3. For my soul is full of troubles: and my life draweth nigh unto the grave.

  4. I am counted with them that go down into the pit: I am as a man that hath no strength:

  5. Free among the dead, like the slain that lie in the grave, whom thou rememberest no more: and they are cut off from thy hand.

  6. Thou hast laid me in the lowest pit, in darkness, in the deeps.

  7. Thy wrath lieth hard upon me, and thou hast afflicted me with all thy waves. Selah.

  8. Thou hast put away mine acquaintance far from me; thou hast made me an abomination unto them: I am shut up, and I cannot come forth.

  9. Mine eye mourneth by reason of affliction: LORD, I have called daily upon thee, I have stretched out my hands unto thee.

  10. Wilt thou shew wonders to the dead? shall the dead arise and praise thee? Selah.
