Psalms 6

1

TO THE CHOIRMASTER: WITH STRINGED INSTRUMENTS; ACCORDING TO THE SHEMINITH. A PSALM OF DAVID. O LORD, rebuke me not in your anger, nor discipline me in your wrath.

2

Be gracious to me, O LORD, for I am languishing; heal me, O LORD, for my bones are troubled.

3

My soul also is greatly troubled. But you, O LORD- how long?

4

Turn, O LORD, deliver my life; save me for the sake of your steadfast love.

5

For in death there is no remembrance of you; in Sheol who will give you praise?

6

I am weary with my moaning; every night I flood my bed with tears; I drench my couch with my weeping.

7

My eye wastes away because of grief; it grows weak because of all my foes.

8

Depart from me, all you workers of evil, for the LORD has heard the sound of my weeping.

9

The LORD has heard my plea; the LORD accepts my prayer.

10

All my enemies shall be ashamed and greatly troubled; they shall turn back and be put to shame in a moment.
