Psalm 6:1-5 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Prayer for Mercy in Time of Trouble.

For the choir director; with stringed instruments, [a]upon an eight-string lyre. A Psalm of David.

O Lord, do not rebuke me in Your anger,
Nor chasten me in Your wrath.
Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am pining away;
Heal me, O Lord, for my bones are dismayed.
And my soul is greatly dismayed;
But You, O Lordhow long?

Return, O Lord, rescue my [b]soul;
Save me because of Your lovingkindness.
For there is no [c]mention of You in death;
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?
