For the choir director; with stringed instruments, [a]upon an eight-string lyre. A Psalm of David.
6 O Lord, do not rebuke me in Your anger, Nor chasten me in Your wrath. 2 Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I ampining away; Heal me, O Lord, for my bones are dismayed. 3 And my soul is greatly dismayed; But You, O Lord—how long?
4 Return, O Lord, rescue my [b]soul; Save me because of Your lovingkindness. 5 For there is no [c]mention of You in death; In [d]Sheol who will give You thanks?
6 I am weary with my sighing; Every night I make my bed swim, I dissolve my couch with my tears. 7 My eye has wasted away with grief; It has become old because of all my adversaries.
8 Depart from me, all you who do iniquity, For the Lordhas heard the voice of my weeping. 9 The Lordhas heard my supplication, The Lordreceives my prayer. 10 All my enemies will be ashamed and greatly dismayed; They shall [e]turn back, they will suddenly be ashamed.
Psalm 6:1Or according to a lower octave (Heb Sheminith)
