Thanks, Jerry ! I just checked DeRossi and Kennicott for variants. There are none noted. The Latin Vulgate got it better: “verba rugitus mei”.
Your explanation makes sense.

Hi Peter,

I was looking at this passage just a couple of days ago.  The LXX does something very similar.  They translate it as "from my transgressions."  One suggestion by the text-critics is that the LXX may have misread the root as shagag or shaga' rather than sha'ag (I don't know your familiarity with Hebrew, so I'm using a simplified transliteration scheme).  So perhaps both the LXX and the Syriac either misread the Hebrew (a possible metathesis), or, conjecturally, one might suggest they had a different Hebrew text in front of them.  In any case, this other root has to do with transgressions, going astray, and perhaps, in some cases, unintentionally.  So one could see an overlap between folly and unintentionally going astray.
