11 I said, [a]I shall not see the Lord, even the Lord in the land of the living: I shall see man no more among the inhabitants of the world.
12 Mine habitation is departed, and is removed from me, like a shepherd’s tent: I [b]have cut off like a weaver my life: he will cut me off from the height: from day [c]to night, thou wilt make an end of me.
13 I reckoned [d]to the morning: but he brake all my bones like a lion, from day to night wilt thou make an end of me.
Isaiah 38:11I shall no more praise the Lord here in this Temple among the faithful: thus God suffereth his dearest children to want his consolation for a time, that his grace afterward may the more appear when they feel their own weakness.
Isaiah 38:12By my sin I have provoked God to take my life from me.
Isaiah 38:13Over night I thought that I should live till morning, but my pangs in the night persuaded me the contrary: he showeth the horror that the faithful have when they apprehend God’s judgment against their sin.
