Bible: Psalms 6

Psalm 6 1 

6:1 For the music director, to be accompanied by stringed instruments, according to the sheminith style; 2  a psalm of David.

Lord, do not rebuke me in your anger!

Do not discipline me in your raging fury! 3 

6:2 Have mercy on me, 4  Lord, for I am frail!

Heal me, Lord, for my bones are shaking! 5 

6:3 I am absolutely terrified, 6 

and you, Lordhow long will this continue? 7 

6:4 Relent, Lord, rescue me! 8 

Deliver me because of your faithfulness! 9 

6:5 For no one remembers you in the realm of death, 10 

In Sheol who gives you thanks? 11 

6:6 I am exhausted as I groan;

all night long I drench my bed in tears; 12 

my tears saturate the cushion beneath me. 13 

6:7 My eyes 14  grow dim 15  from suffering;

they grow weak 16  because of all my enemies. 17 

6:8 Turn back from me, all you who behave wickedly, 18 

for the Lord has heard the sound of my weeping! 19 

6:9 The Lord has heard my appeal for mercy;

the Lord has accepted 20  my prayer.

6:10 May all my enemies be humiliated 21  and absolutely terrified! 22 

May they turn back and be suddenly humiliated!
