God’s Steadfast Love Endures

 3

I am one who has seen affliction

under the rod of God’s wrath;

2

he has driven and brought me

into darkness without any light;

3

against me alone he turns his hand,

again and again, all day long.

 

4

He has made my flesh and my skin waste away,

and broken my bones;

5

he has besieged and enveloped me

with bitterness and tribulation;

6

he has made me sit in darkness

like the dead of long ago.

 

7

He has walled me about so that I cannot escape;

he has put heavy chains on me;

8

though I call and cry for help,

he shuts out my prayer;

9

he has blocked my ways with hewn stones,

he has made my paths crooked.
