9 Have mercy upon me, O Jehovah [or Yahweh], for I am in distress:
Mine eye wasteth away with grief [or anger], yea, my soul and my body.
10 For my life is spent with sorrow,
And my years with sighing:
My strength faileth because of poverty,
And my bones are wasted away because of mine enemies.
11 I am become a reproach, unto my neighbors exceedingly,
And a fear to mine acquaintance:
They that did see me without fled from me.
12 I am completely forgotten as a dead man:
I am like a broken vessel.
13 For I have heard the defaming of many,
Terror on every side:
While they took counsel together against me,
They devised to take away my life.
14 But I trusted in thee, O Jehovah:
I said, Thou art my God, O Jehovah.
15 My times are in thy hand:
Deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me.
16 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant:
Deliver me with thy mercy.
Psalm 31:9-16 (ASV with corrections made with the Aramaic Pshitta)
