Psalms - Chapter 6

1

For the director of music. With stringed instruments. According to sheminith. A psalm of David. O LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your wrath.


2

Be merciful to me, LORD, for I am faint; O LORD, heal me, for my bones are in agony.


3

My soul is in anguish. How long, O LORD, how long?


4

Turn, O LORD, and deliver me; save me because of your unfailing love.


5

No one remembers you when he is dead. Who praises you from the grave?


6

I am worn out from groaning; all night long I flood my bed with weeping and drench my couch with tears.


7

My eyes grow weak with sorrow; they fail because of all my foes.


8

Away from me, all you who do evil, for the LORD has heard my weeping.


9

The LORD has heard my cry for mercy; the LORD accepts my prayer.


10

All my enemies will be ashamed and dismayed; they will turn back in sudden disgrace.
