8 Whenever I speak, I cry out
proclaiming violence and destruction.(A)
So the word of the Lord has brought me
insult and reproach(B) all day long.
9 But if I say, “I will not mention his word
or speak anymore in his name,”(C)
his word is in my heart like a fire,(D)
a fire shut up in my bones.
I am weary of holding it in;(E)
indeed, I cannot.
