The kwaters *compassed me about, even to the soul: the depth closed me round about, the weeds were wrapped about my head.

6

I went down to the 4bottoms of the mountains; the earth with lher bars was about me for ever: myet hast thou brought up my life from 5corruption, O LORD my God.

7

When nmy soul ofainted within me pI remembered the LORD: and qmy prayer came in unto thee, into thine rholy temple.
