Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:1 - I am the man who has seen affliction
Because of the rod of His wrath.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:2 - He has driven me and made me walk
In darkness and not in light.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:3 - Surely against me He has turned His hand
Repeatedly all the day.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:4 - He has caused my flesh and my skin to waste away,
He has broken my bones.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:5 - He has besieged and encompassed me with bitterness and hardship.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:6 - In dark places He has made me dwell,
Like those who have long been dead.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:7 - He has walled me in so that I cannot go out;
He has made my [fn]chain heavy.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:8 - Even when I cry out and call for help,
He shuts out my prayer.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:9 - He has blocked my ways with hewn stone;
He has made my paths crooked.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:10 - He is to me like a bear lying in wait,
Like a lion in secret places.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:11 - He has turned aside my ways and torn me to pieces;
He has made me desolate.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:12 - He bent His bow
And set me as a target for the arrow.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:13 - He made the [fn]arrows of His quiver
To enter into my [fn]inward parts.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:14 - I have become a laughingstock to all my people,
Their mocking song all the day.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:15 - He has filled me with bitterness,
He has made me drunk with wormwood.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:16 - He has broken my teeth with gravel;
He has made me cower in the dust.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:17 - My soul has been rejected from peace;
I have forgotten [fn]happiness.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:18 - So I say, “My strength has perished,
And so has my hope from the LORD.”

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:19 - Remember my affliction and my [fn]wandering, the wormwood and bitterness.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:20 - Surely my soul remembers
And is bowed down within me.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:21 - This I recall to my mind,
Therefore I have hope.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:22 - The LORDS lovingkindnesses [fn]indeed never cease,
For His compassions never fail.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:23 - They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:24 - “The LORD is my portion,” says my soul,
“Therefore I have hope in Him.”

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:25 - The LORD is good to those who wait for Him,
To the [fn]person who seeks Him.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:26 - It is good that he waits silently
For the salvation of the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:27 - It is good for a man that he should bear
The yoke in his youth.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:28 - Let him sit alone and be silent
Since He has laid it on him.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:29 - Let him [fn]put his mouth in the dust,
Perhaps there is hope.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:30 - Let him give his cheek to [fn]the smiter,
Let him be filled with reproach.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:31 - For the Lord will not reject forever,

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:32 - For if He causes grief,
Then He will have compassion
According to His abundant lovingkindness.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:33 - For He does not afflict [fn]willingly
Or grieve the sons of men.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:34 - To crush under His feet
All the prisoners of the [fn]land,

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:35 - To [fn]deprive a man of justice
In the presence of the Most High,

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:36 - To [fn]defraud a man in his lawsuit—
Of these things the Lord does not [fn]approve.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:37 - Who is [fn]there who speaks and it comes to pass,
Unless the Lord has commanded it?

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:38 - Is it not from the mouth of the Most High
That [fn]both good and ill go forth?

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:39 - Why should any living [fn]mortal, or any man,
Offer complaint [fn]in view of his sins?

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:40 - Let us examine and probe our ways,
And let us return to the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:41 - We lift up our heart [fn]and hands
Toward God in heaven;

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:42 - We have transgressed and rebelled,
You have not pardoned.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:43 - You have covered Yourself with anger
And pursued us;
You have slain and have not spared.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:44 - You have covered Yourself with a cloud
So that no prayer can pass through.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:45 - You have made us mere offscouring and refuse
In the midst of the peoples.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:46 - All our enemies have opened their mouths against us.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:47 - Panic and pitfall have befallen us,
Devastation and destruction;

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:48 - My [fn]eyes run down with streams of water
Because of the destruction of the daughter of my people.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:49 - My eyes pour down unceasingly,
Without stopping,

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:50 - Until the LORD looks down
And sees from heaven.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:51 - My eyes bring pain to my soul
Because of all the daughters of my city.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:52 - My enemies without cause
Hunted me down like a bird;

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:53 - They have silenced [fn]me in the pit
And have [fn]placed a stone on me.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:54 - Waters flowed over my head;
I said, “I am cut off!”

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:55 - I called on Your name, O LORD,
Out of the lowest pit.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:56 - You have heard my voice,
“Do not hide Your ear from my prayer for relief,
From my cry for help.”

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:57 - You drew near when I called on You;
You said, “Do not fear!”

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:58 - O Lord, You have pleaded my soul’s cause;
You have redeemed my life.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:59 - O LORD, You have seen my oppression;
Judge my case.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:60 - You have seen all their vengeance,
All their schemes against me.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:61 - You have heard their reproach, O LORD,
All their schemes against me.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:62 - The lips of my assailants and their whispering
Are against me all day long.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:63 - Look on their sitting and their rising;
I am their mocking song.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:64 - You will recompense them, O LORD,
According to the work of their hands.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:65 - You will give them [fn]hardness of heart,
Your curse will be on them.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:66 - You will pursue them in anger and destroy them
From under the heavens of the LORD!
