Psalm 6

For the Music Director. With stringed instruments. According to The Sheminith. A Psalm of David.

O Lord, do not rebuke me in Your anger,
    nor discipline me in the heat of Your anger.
Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am weak;
    O Lord, heal me, for my bones are terrified.
My soul is greatly troubled,
    but You, O Lord, how long?

Return, O Lord, rescue my soul.
    Save me for the sake of Your lovingkindness.
For in death there is no remembrance of You;
    in Sheol who will give You thanks?

I am weary with my groaning;
    all night I flood my bed with weeping;
    I drench my couch with my tears.
My eye wastes away from grief;
    it grows weak because of all those hostile to me.

Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity;
    for the Lord has heard the voice of my weeping.
The Lord has heard my supplication;
    the Lord accepts my prayer.
10 May all my enemies be ashamed and greatly terrified;
    may they turn back and be suddenly ashamed.
