9. Have mercy upon me, O Jehovah! for I am in trouble: mine eye, my soul, and my belly, are consumed by reason of anger. 10. For my life is wasted by reason of grief, and my years with groaning; my strength faileth in my sorrow, and my bones are
consumed. 11. I was a reproach by reason of all mine
enemies, yea, exceedingly to my neighbors, and a fear to my acquaintances; and they who saw me abroad fled from me.
12. I am forgotten as one dead, I am become like a broken vessel. 13. For I have heard the railing of many,
and fear encloseth me on every side, while they consult together against me, and plot to take away my life.
