My wounds are foul and festering Because of my foolishness. Psalm 38:5 There are consequences of sin within us which we are not able yet to reach, consequences that are following us in secret, and damaging us in very vital points. Spurgeon, 1834-92

I am feeble and severely broken; I groan because of the turmoil of my heart. Lord, all my desire is before You; And my sighing is not hidden from You. Psalm 38:8,9 Seasons recur when sense of sin and bodily distress cast us into lowest depths. Yet, faith survives; it knows its refuge and looks above. It doubts not that God still loves. Henry Law, 1878

My heart pounds, my strength fails me; even the light has gone from my eyes. My friends and loved ones avoid me because of my wounds. Psalm 38:10,11a Teach me to feel another's woe; That mercy I to others show, That mercy show to me. Alexander Pope, 1688-1744, English poet

(Under criticism and persecution) I am like a man who does not hear, And in whose mouth are no arguments. For I hope in You, O Jehovah; O Lord my God You will answer. Psalm 38:14,15 The man who is fully persuaded in his own heart that God is his defender, will cherish his hope in silence, and, calling upon Him for help, will lay a restraint upon his own passions. John Calvin, 1509-64, French reformer and theologian

I confess my iniquity; I am full of anxiety because of my sin. Psalm 38:18 Long my imprisoned spirit lay Fast bound in sin and nature’s night. Thine eye diffused a quickening ray; I woke – the dungeon flamed with light! My chains fell off, my heart was free, I rose, went forth, and followed Thee. Charles Wesley, 1707-88, wrote hymns often while riding on horseback with John to preach to the dismissed of society.
