Psalms 6

Do not Rebuke Me in Your Anger

1 For the choirmaster. With stringed instruments, according to Sheminith.
Probably a musical or liturgical term; here and in 1 Chronicles 15 and Psalm 12
A Psalm of David. O LORD, do not rebuke me in Your anger, or discipline me in Your wrath.
2 Be merciful to me, O LORD, for I am frail; heal me, O LORD, for my bones are in agony. 3 My soul is deeply distressed. How long, O LORD, how long? 4 Turn, O LORD, [and] deliver my soul; save me because of Your loving devotion. 5 For there is no mention of You in death; who can praise You from Sheol? 6 I am weary from groaning; all night I flood my bed with {weeping} [and] drench my couch with tears. 7 My eyes fail from grief; they grow dim because of all my foes. 8 Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity, for the LORD has heard my weeping. 9 The LORD has heard my cry for mercy; the LORD accepts my prayer. 10 All my enemies will be ashamed and dismayed; they will turn back in sudden disgrace.
