Psalm 6


For the director of music.  With stringed instruments.  According to sheminith.a  A psalm of David.



1                    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 graveb?


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.
