Psalm 88 *In The Morning Doth My Prayer Come To Meet Thee*

Chapter 88 *In The Morning Doth My Prayer Come To Meet Thee*

א שִׁיר מִזְמוֹר, לִבְנֵי-קֹרַח:

לַמְנַצֵּחַ עַל-מָחֲלַת לְעַנּוֹת; מַשְׂכִּיל, לְהֵימָן הָאֶזְרָחִי. 1

A Song, a Psalm of the sons of Korah; {N}

for the Leader; upon Mahalath Leannoth. Maschil of Heman the Ezrahite.

ב יְהוָה, אֱלֹהֵי יְשׁוּעָתִי– יוֹם-צָעַקְתִּי בַלַּיְלָה נֶגְדֶּךָ. 2

O jehovah, God of my salvation, what time I cry in the night before Thee,

*In The Morning Doth My Prayer Come To Meet Thee*

ג תָּבוֹא לְפָנֶיךָ, תְּפִלָּתִי; הַטֵּה אָזְנְךָ, לְרִנָּתִי. 3

Let my prayer come before Thee, incline Thine ear unto my cry.

*In The Morning Doth My Prayer Come To Meet Thee*

ד כִּי-שָׂבְעָה בְרָעוֹת נַפְשִׁי; וְחַיַּי, לִשְׁאוֹל הִגִּיעוּ. 4

For my soul is sated with troubles, and my life draweth nigh unto the grave.

*In The Morning Doth My Prayer Come To Meet Thee*

ה נֶחְשַׁבְתִּי, עִם-יוֹרְדֵי בוֹר; הָיִיתִי, כְּגֶבֶר אֵין-אֱיָל. 5

I am counted with them that go down into the pit; I am become as a man that hath no help;

*In The Morning Doth My Prayer Come To Meet Thee*

ו בַּמֵּתִים, חָפְשִׁי:

כְּמוֹ חֲלָלִים, שֹׁכְבֵי קֶבֶר– אֲשֶׁר לֹא זְכַרְתָּם עוֹד;

וְהֵמָּה, מִיָּדְךָ נִגְזָרוּ. 6

Set apart among the dead, {N}

like the slain that lie in the grave, whom Thou rememberest no more; {N}

and they are cut off from Thy hand.

*In The Morning Doth My Prayer Come To Meet Thee*

ז שַׁתַּנִי, בְּבוֹר תַּחְתִּיּוֹת; בְּמַחֲשַׁכִּים, בִּמְצֹלוֹת. 7

Thou hast laid me in the nethermost pit, in dark places, in the deeps.

*In The Morning Doth My Prayer Come To Meet Thee*

ח עָלַי, סָמְכָה חֲמָתֶךָ; וְכָל-מִשְׁבָּרֶיךָ, עִנִּיתָ סֶּלָה. 8

Thy wrath lieth hard upon me, and all Thy waves Thou pressest down.

*In The Morning Doth My Prayer Come To Meet Thee*


[Selah]

ט הִרְחַקְתָּ מְיֻדָּעַי, מִמֶּנִּי: שַׁתַּנִי תוֹעֵבוֹת לָמוֹ; כָּלֻא, וְלֹא אֵצֵא. 9

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

*In The Morning Doth My Prayer Come To Meet Thee*

י עֵינִי דָאֲבָה, מִנִּי-עֹנִי:

קְרָאתִיךָ יְהוָה בְּכָל-יוֹם; שִׁטַּחְתִּי אֵלֶיךָ כַפָּי. 10

Mine eye languisheth by reason of affliction; {N}

I have called upon Thee, O jehovah, every day, I have spread forth my hands unto Thee.

*In The Morning Doth My Prayer Come To Meet Thee*

יא הֲלַמֵּתִים תַּעֲשֶׂה-פֶּלֶא: אִם-רְפָאִים, יָקוּמוּ יוֹדוּךָ סֶּלָה. 11

Wilt Thou work wonders for the dead? Or shall the shades arise and give Thee thanks?

*In The Morning Doth My Prayer Come To Meet Thee*


[Selah]

יב הַיְסֻפַּר בַּקֶּבֶר חַסְדֶּךָ; אֱמוּנָתְךָ, בָּאֲבַדּוֹן. 12

Shall Thy mercy be declared in the grave? or Thy faithfulness in destruction?

*In The Morning Doth My Prayer Come To Meet Thee*

יג הֲיִוָּדַע בַּחֹשֶׁךְ פִּלְאֶךָ; וְצִדְקָתְךָ, בְּאֶרֶץ נְשִׁיָּה. 13

Shall Thy wonders be known in the dark? and Thy righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?

*In The Morning Doth My Prayer Come To Meet Thee*

יד וַאֲנִי, אֵלֶיךָ יְהוָה שִׁוַּעְתִּי; וּבַבֹּקֶר, תְּפִלָּתִי תְקַדְּמֶךָּ. 14

But as for me, unto Thee, O jehovah, do I cry, and in the morning doth my prayer come to meet Thee.

*In The Morning Doth My Prayer Come To Meet Thee*

טו לָמָה יְהוָה, תִּזְנַח נַפְשִׁי; תַּסְתִּיר פָּנֶיךָ מִמֶּנִּי. 15

O jehovah why castest Thou off my soul? Why hidest Thou Thy face from me?

*In The Morning Doth My Prayer Come To Meet Thee*

טז עָנִי אֲנִי וְגֹוֵעַ מִנֹּעַר; נָשָׂאתִי אֵמֶיךָ אָפוּנָה. 16

I am afflicted and at the point of death from my youth up; I have borne Thy terrors, I am distracted.

*In The Morning Doth My Prayer Come To Meet Thee*

יז עָלַי, עָבְרוּ חֲרוֹנֶיךָ; בִּעוּתֶיךָ, צִמְּתוּתֻנִי. 17

Thy fierce wrath is gone over me; Thy terrors have cut me off.

*In The Morning Doth My Prayer Come To Meet Thee*

יח סַבּוּנִי כַמַּיִם, כָּל-הַיּוֹם; הִקִּיפוּ עָלַי יָחַד. 18

They came round about me like water all the day; they compassed me about together.

*In The Morning Doth My Prayer Come To Meet Thee*

יט הִרְחַקְתָּ מִמֶּנִּי, אֹהֵב וָרֵעַ; מְיֻדָּעַי מַחְשָׁךְ. 19

Friend and companion hast Thou put far from me, and mine acquaintance into darkness. {P}

*In The Morning Doth My Prayer Come To Meet Thee*
