must I now enter the place of the dead?[fn]
Am I to be robbed of the rest of my years?”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 38:11 - I said, “Never again will I see the LORD GOD
while still in the land of the living.
Never again will I see my friends
or be with those who live in this world.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 38:12 - My life has been blown away
like a shepherd’s tent in a storm.
It has been cut short,
as when a weaver cuts cloth from a loom.

but I was torn apart as though by lions.
Suddenly, my life was over.

and then I moaned like a mourning dove.
My eyes grew tired of looking to heaven for help.
I am in trouble, Lord. Help me!”

For he himself sent this sickness.
Now I will walk humbly throughout my years
because of this anguish I have felt.

You restore my health

for you have rescued me from death
and forgiven all my sins.

Each generation tells of your faithfulness to the next.

every day of my life
in the Temple of the LORD.
