Psalms Chapter 6 |
1 For the leader; with instrumental music on the sheminith. A psalm of David.
2O Lord, do not punish me in anger,
do not chastise me in fury.
3Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I languish;
heal me, O Lord, for my bones shake with terror.
4My whole being is stricken with terror,
while You, Lord—O, how long!
5O Lord, turn! Rescue me!
Deliver me as befits Your faithfulness.
6For there is no praise of You among the dead;
in Sheol, who can acclaim You?
7I am weary with groaning;
every night I drench my bed,
I melt my couch in tears.
8My eyes are wasted by vexation,
worn out because of all my foes.
9Away from me, all you evildoers,
for the Lord heeds the sound of my weeping.
10The Lord heeds my plea,
the Lord accepts my prayer.
11All my enemies will be frustrated and stricken with terror;
they will turn back in an instant, frustrated.
