88 O Lord, cGod of my salvation,
I dcry out day and night before you.
eincline your ear to my cry!
4 I am counted among those who hgo down to the pit;
like those whom iyou remember no more,
for they are jcut off from your hand.
6 You have put me in kthe depths of the pit,
7 Your wrath nlies heavy upon me,
and you overwhelm me with oall your waves. Selah
8 You have caused pmy companions to shun me;
I am rshut in so that I cannot escape;
9 smy eye grows dim through sorrow.
I tspread out my hands to you.
uDo the departed rise up to praise you? Selah
or your righteousness in the land of xforgetfulness?
13 But I, O Lord, cry yto you;
zin the morning my prayer comes before you.
14 O Lord, why ado you cast my soul away?
Why bdo you hide your face from me?
I suffer your terrors; I am helpless.3
your cdreadful assaults destroy me.
they fclose in on me together.
18 You have caused gmy beloved and my friend to shun me;
my companions have become darkness.4
