4 Lord, you brought my soul up from Sheol; you let me live, from going down to the pit.[a](A)
5 I am reckoned with those who go down to the pit; I am like a warrior without strength.
7 Hasten to answer me, Lord; for my spirit fails me.Do not hide your face from me, lest I become like those descending to the pit.(A)
12 Let us swallow them alive, like Sheol, whole, like those who go down to the pit!
