Psalm 6

A Prayer for Mercy

For the choir director: with stringed instruments, according to Sheminith. A Davidic psalm.

Lord, do not rebuke me in Your anger;
do not discipline me in Your wrath.
Be gracious to me, Lord, for I am weak;[a]
heal me, Lord, for my bones are shaking;
my whole being is shaken with terror.
And You, Lord—how long?

Turn, Lord! Rescue me;
save me because of Your faithful love.
For there is no remembrance of You in death;
who can thank You in Sheol?

I am weary from my groaning;
with my tears I dampen my pillow[b]
and drench my bed every night.
My eyes are swollen from grief;
they[c] grow old because of all my enemies.

Depart from me, all evildoers,
for the Lord has heard the sound of my weeping.
The Lord has heard my plea for help;
the Lord accepts my prayer.
10 All my enemies will be ashamed and shake with terror;
they will turn back and suddenly be disgraced.
