Psalm 6 The Message (MSG)
A David Psalm
6 1-2 Please, God, no more yelling,
2-3 Can’t you see I’m black-and-blue,
4-5 Break in, God, and break up this fight;
6-7 I’m tired of all this—so tired. My bed
8-9 Get out of here, you Devil’s crew:
10 Cowards, my enemies disappear.
Psalm 6 New International Version (NIV)
For the director of music. With stringed instruments. According to sheminith.[b] A psalm of David.
1 Lord, do not rebuke me in your anger
4 Turn, Lord, and deliver me;
6 I am worn out from my groaning.
All night long I flood my bed with weeping
8 Away from me, all you who do evil,
Psalm 6 King James Version (KJV)
6 O Lord, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.
2 Have mercy upon me, O Lord; for I am weak: O Lord, heal me; for my bones are vexed.
3 My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O Lord, how long?
4 Return, O Lord, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies' sake.
5 For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?
6 I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears.
7 Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because of all mine enemies.
8 Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the Lord hath heard the voice of my weeping.
9 The Lord hath heard my supplication; the Lord will receive my prayer.
10 Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let them return and be ashamed suddenly.
