Psalms 38:6

38:6 I am dazed and completely humiliated;

all day long I walk around mourning.

Psalms 38:8

38:8 I am numb with pain and severely battered;

I groan loudly because of the anxiety I feel.

tn The verb’s precise shade of meaning in this context is not entirely clear. The verb, which literally means “to bend,” may refer to the psalmist’s posture. In Isa 21:3 it seems to mean “be confused, dazed.”

tn Heb “I am bowed down to excess.”

tn Heb “I am numb and crushed to excess.”

tn Heb “I roar because of the moaning of my heart.”
