9

I am silent; I do not open my mouth,

for it is you who have done it.

10

Remove your stroke from me;

I am worn down by the blows of your hand.

 

11

“You chastise mortals

in punishment for sin,

consuming like a moth what is dear to them;

surely everyone is a mere breath. Selah

 

12

“Hear my prayer, O Lord,

and give ear to my cry;

do not hold your peace at my tears.

For I am your passing guest,

an alien, like all my forebears.

13

Turn your gaze away from me, that I may smile again,

before I depart and am no more.”
