In [d]Sheol who will give You thanks?

Psalm 6:1-5 Young's Literal Translation (YLT)

To the Overseer with stringed instruments, on the octave. -- A Psalm of David. O Jehovah, in Thine anger reprove me not, Nor in Thy fury chastise me.

Favour me, O Jehovah, for I [am] weak, Heal me, O Jehovah, For troubled have been my bones,

And my soul hath been troubled greatly, And Thou, O Jehovah, till when?

Turn back, O Jehovah, draw out my soul, Save me for Thy kindness' sake.

For there is not in death Thy memorial, In Sheol, who doth give thanks to Thee?
