Psalms 88:4-8

Context

88:4 They treat me like 1  those who descend into the grave. 2 

I am like a helpless man, 3 

88:5 adrift 4  among the dead,

like corpses lying in the grave,

whom you remember no more,

and who are cut off from your power. 5 

88:6 You place me in the lowest regions of the pit, 6 

in the dark places, in the watery depths.

88:7 Your anger bears down on me,

and you overwhelm me with all your waves. (Selah)

88:8 You cause those who know me to keep their distance;

you make me an appalling sight to them.

I am trapped and cannot get free. 7
