I am counted with those who go down into the pit; I am like a helpless man, free among the dead, like slain men thrown down and sleeping in a grave, whom Thou remembers no more who are removed from Thy hand. They laid me in the lowest pit in dark places and in the shadow of Death. Thy Wrath rested upon me, and Thou brought all Thy Billows over me. (PAUSE) Thou removed my acquaintances far from me they made me an abomination amongst themselves; I was betrayed, and did not go forth. My sight weakened from poverty; and I cry to Thee the whole day long, O Lord; I spread out my hands to Thee. Wilt Thou work Wonders for the dead? Or will Physicians raise them up, and acknowledge Thee? Shall anyone in the grave describe Thy Mercy and Thy Truth in destruction? Shalt Thy Wonders be known in the dark? And Thy Righteousness in the Land of Oblivion? Yet I cry to Thee, O Lord, and in the morning my Prayer shall come near to Thee.

will not become angry to the end, nor will He be wrathful forever; He did not deal with us according to our sin, nor reward us according to our transgressions. For according to the height of Heaven from earth, so the Lord reigns in Mercy over those who fear Him; as far as the East is from the West, so He removes our transgressions from us. As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has Compassion on those who fear Him, for He knows how He formed us; He remembers that we are but sand. As for man, his days are like grass, as a flower of the field, so he flourishes; for the wind passes through it, and it shall not remain; and it shall no longer know its place. But the Mercy of the Lord is from age to age upon those who fear Him, and His Righteousness upon childrens children, to those who keep His Covenant and who remember His Commandments to do them.
