No, Lord! Don’t punish me in the heat of your anger. Pity me, O Lord, for I am weak. Heal me, for my body is sick, and I am upset and disturbed. My mind is filled with apprehension and with gloom. Oh, restore me soon.

Come, O Lord, and make me well. In your kindness save me. For if I die, I cannot give you glory by praising you before my friends.[a] I am worn out with pain; every night my pillow is wet with tears. My eyes are growing old and dim with grief because of all my enemies.

Go, leave me now, you men of evil deeds, for the Lord has heard my weeping and my pleading. He will answer all my prayers. 10 All my enemies shall be suddenly dishonored, terror-stricken, and disgraced. God will turn them back in shame.

Footnotes

  1. Psalm 6:5 For if I die, I cannot give you glory by praising you before my friends, literally, “In the grave, who shall give you thanks?” Isaiah 57:1-2 may indicate that Old Testament saints believed in a conscious and pleasant hereafter for those who love God.
