For the choir director; with stringed instruments, on the sheminith;[a] a psalm by David.
1 O Lord, do not punish me in your anger or discipline me in your rage. 2 Have pity on me, O Lord, because I am weak. Heal me, O Lord, because my bones shake with terror. 3 My soul has been deeply shaken with terror. But you, O Lord, how long . . . ?
4 Come back, O Lord. Rescue me. Save me because of your mercy! 5 In death, no one remembers you. In the grave, who praises you?
6 I am worn out from my groaning. My eyes flood my bed every night. I soak my couch with tears. 7 My eyes blur from grief. They fail because of my enemies.
8 Get away from me, all you troublemakers, because the Lord has heard the sound of my crying. 9 The Lord has heard my plea for mercy. The Lord accepts my prayer. 10 All my enemies will be put to shame and deeply shaken with terror. In a moment they will retreat and be put to shame.
