For the director of music. With stringed instruments. Upon the sheminith. A psalm of David.
6 Lord, don’t correct me when you are angry; don’t punish me when you are very angry. 2 Lord, have mercy on me because I am weak. Heal me, Lord, because my bones ache. 3 I am very upset. Lord, how long will it be?
4 Lord, return and save me; save me because of your kindness. 5 Dead people don’t remember you; those in the grave don’t praise you.
6 I am tired of crying to you. Every night my bed is wet with tears; my bed is soaked from my crying. 7 My eyes are weak from so much crying; they are weak from crying about my enemies.
8 Get away from me, all you who do evil, because the Lord has heard my crying. 9 The Lord has heard my cry for help; the Lord will answer my prayer. 10 All my enemies will be ashamed and troubled. They will turn and suddenly leave in shame.
