Psalm 38:9-16 ETR Cowboys for Christ My Lord, you heard my groaning. You can hear my sighs.

My heart is pounding. My strength is gone, and I am going blind.

Because of my sickness, my friends and neighbors will not visit me; my family will not come near me.

My enemies say bad things about me. They are spreading lies and rumors. They talk about me all the time.

But I am like a deaf man and cannot hear. I am like someone who cannot speak.

I am like those who cannot hear what people are saying about them. I cannot answer to prove my enemies wrong.

LORD, you must defend me. Lord my God, you must speak for me.

That’s why I prayed, “Don’t let my enemies smile at my pain. Full of pride, they will laugh if I stumble and fall.”

am silent before them as a man who cannot speak. I have nothing to say.

Put an end to their arrogance, these who gloat when am cast down!

How constantly find myself upon the verge of sin; this source of sorrow always stares me in my face.
