Lord, punish me no more in your anger; in your wrath do not chastise me!
Your arrows have sunk deep in me; your hand has come down upon me.
My flesh is afflicted because of your anger; my frame aches because of my sin.
My iniquities overwhelm me, a burden beyond my strength.

Lord, I wait for you; O Lord, my God, answer me.

Forsake me not, O Lord; my God, be not far from me!
Come quickly to help me, my Lord and my salvation!

Psalm 38:2-5, 16, 22-23
