Like One Who is Dead...

"Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am in distress
my eye wastes away from grief,

my soul and body also.
For my life is spent with sorrow,
and my years with sighing;
affliction has broken down my strength
and my bones waste away.
I have passed out of mind like one who is dead;
I have become like a broken vessel.
But I trust in you, O Lord;
I say, 'You are my God.'
Save me in your steadfast love"

(Psalm 31:9-10,12,14,16).
