Psalm 6


O Lord, Deliver My Life



 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.
