4My heart is in anguish within me; the terrors of death have fallen on me.
5Fear and trembling have beset me; horror has overwhelmed me.
6I said, “Oh, that I had the wings of a dove! I would fly away and be at rest.
7I would flee far away and stay in the desert; The Hebrew has Selah (a word of uncertain meaning) here and in the middle of verse 19.
8I would hurry to my place of shelter, far from the tempest and storm.”
