A Shir, a Mizmor of the benai Korach for the Leader, upon Mahalat Leannot. Maskil of Heman the Ezrachite.

88:1 O YHWH (יהוה) Elohim (אלהים) of my salvation, I have cried day [and] night before thee:

88:2 Let my tefillah come before thee: incline thine ear unto my cry;

88:3 For my nefesh is full of troubles: and my life draweth nigh unto the grave.

88:4 I am counted with them that go down into the pit: I am as a man [that hath] no strength:

88:5 Free among the dead, like the slain that lie in the grave, whom thou rememberest no more: and they are cut off from Thy hand.

88:6 Thou hast laid me in the lowest pit, in darkness, in the deeps.

88:7 Thy wrath lieth hard upon me, and thou hast afflicted [me] with all thy waves. Selah.

88:8 Thou hast put away mine acquaintance far from me; thou hast made me an abomination unto them: [I am] shut up, and I cannot come forth.

88:9 Mine eye mourneth by reason of affliction: YHWH (יהוה), I have called daily upon thee, I have stretched out my hands unto thee.

88:10 Wilt thou shew wonders to the dead? shall the dead arise [and] praise thee? Selah.

88:11 Shall thy lovingkindness be declared in the grave? [or] thy faithfulness in Abaddon (i.e. Destruction; אבדּון)?

88:12 Shall thy wonders be known in the dark? and thy Tzedek in the land of forgetfulness?

88:13 But unto thee have I cried, O YHWH (יהוה); and in the morning shall my tefillah prevent thee.

88:14 YHWH (יהוה), why castest thou off my nefesh? [why] hidest thou Thy face from me?

88:15 I [am] afflicted and ready to die from [my] youth up: [while] I suffer thy terrors I am distracted.

88:16 Thy fierce wrath goeth over me; thy terrors have cut me off.

88:17 They came round about me daily like water; they compassed me about together.

88:18 Lover and friend hast thou put far from me, [and] mine acquaintance into darkness.
