New International Version
My life is consumed by anguish and my years by groaning; my strength fails because of my affliction, and my bones grow weak.
King James Bible
For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing: my strength faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are consumed.
Darby Bible Translation
For my life is spent with sorrow, and my years with sighing; my strength faileth through mine iniquity, and my bones are wasted.
World English Bible
For my life is spent with sorrow, my years with sighing. My strength fails because of my iniquity. My bones are wasted away.
Young's Literal Translation
For my life hath been consumed in sorrow And my years in sighing. Feeble because of mine iniquity hath been my strength, And my bones have become old.
Psalm 31:10 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
My life is spent with grief - My life is a life of suffering and distress, and by grief my days are shortened. Grief disturbs the functions of life, prevents the due concoction of food, injures the digestive organs, destroys appetite, impairs the nervous system, relaxes the muscles, induces morbid action in the animal economy, and hastens death.

The och-och-on of the Irish is precisely the same sound, and the same sense. Thousands of beauties or this kind are to be found in the sacred language.

My Spirit on Thy Care
Have mercy on me, LORD, for I am faint; heal me, LORD, for my bones are in agony.
How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and day after day have sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me?
I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint. My heart has turned to wax; it has melted within me.
When I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long.
Because of your wrath there is no health in my body; there is no soundness in my bones because of my sin.
My heart pounds, my strength fails me; even the light has gone from my eyes.
When you rebuke and discipline anyone for their sin, you consume their wealth like a moth-- surely everyone is but a breath.
