13But I cry to you for help, LORD ; in the morning my prayer comes before you.
14Why, LORD, do you reject me and hide your face from me?
15From my youth I have suffered and been close to death; I have borne your terrors and am in despair.
16Your wrath has swept over me; your terrors have destroyed me.
17All day long they surround me like a flood; they have completely engulfed me.
18You have taken from me friend and neighbor— darkness is my closest friend.
