Lydenstyd: Liturgie van die Passie van Christus

Psalm

9Be merciful to me, LORD,

for I am in trouble;

my eyes are tired from so much crying;

I am completely worn out.

10I am exhausted by sorrow,

and weeping has shortened my life.

I am weak from all my troubles;

even my bones are wasting away.

11All my enemies, and especially my neighbours,

treat me with contempt;

those who know me are afraid of me;

when they see me in the street, they run away.

12Everyone has forgotten me, as though I were dead;

I am like something thrown away.

13I hear many enemies whispering;

terror is all round me.

They are making plans against me,

plotting to kill me.

14But my trust is in you, O LORD;

you are my God.

15I am always in your care;

save me from my enemies,

from those who persecute me.

16Look on your servant with kindness;

save me in your constant love.
