when he hides his face

Psalm 88:14-18 (JDV)

Psalm 88:14 Yahveh, why do you reject my throat? Why do you hide your face from me?
Psalm 88:15 From my youth, I have been suffering and near death. I suffer your horrors; I am desperate.
Psalm 88:16 Your wrath sweeps over me; your terrors silence me.
Psalm 88:17 They surround me like water all day long; they close in on me from every side.
Psalm 88:18 You have distanced loved one and neighbor from me; darkness is my only friend.

when he hides his face

This is a prayer of someone who has been left alone, who has lost all his support. He has to seek God’s help and rely on his deliverance. But God seems to be hiding his face.

LORD, help us in our time of need. When we have lost all the friendly faces, may we know that yours is still there.
