Psalm 31:9-16 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
9 Have mercy upon me, O Lord, for I am in trouble; mine eye is consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my belly.
10 For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing; my strength faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are consumed.
11 I am a reproach among all mine enemies, but especially among my neighbors, and a fear to mine acquaintances; they that see me in the streets flee from me.
12 I am forgotten as a dead man, out of mind; I am like a broken vessel.
13 For I have heard the slander of many; fear was on every side; while they took counsel together against me, they schemed to take away my life.
14 But I have trusted in Thee, O Lord; I said, “Thou art my God.”
15 My times are in Thy hand; deliver me from the hand of mine enemies and from them that persecute me.
16 Make Thy face to shine upon Thy servant; save me for Thy mercies’ sake.
