Psalms Scripture Reading - Psalm 31:9-13

Psalm 31:9-13 Holman Christian Standard Bible

Be gracious to me, Lord,

because I am in distress;

my eyes are worn out from angry sorrow—

my whole being as well.

Indeed, my life is consumed with grief

and my years with groaning;

my strength has failed

because of my sinfulness,

and my bones waste away.

I am ridiculed by all my adversaries

and even by my neighbors.

I am dreaded by my acquaintances;

those who see me in the street run from me.

I am forgotten: gone from memory

like a dead person—like broken pottery.

I have heard the gossip of many;

terror is on every side.

When they conspired against me,

they plotted to take my life.
