Psalm 6

grace.space

(ESV)
To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments; according to The Sheminith. A Psalm of David.
 
1
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.
