O Lord, Deliver My Life
To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments; according to a
The Sheminith. ▼▼Probably a musical or liturgical term A Psalm of David. 1 O Lord, c
rebuke me not in your anger,
nor d discipline me in your wrath.
2Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am languishing;
e heal me, O Lord f for my bones are troubled.
3My g soul also is greatly troubled.
But you, O Lord— h how long?
4 Turn, O Lord, deliver my life;
save me for the sake of your steadfast love.
5For in i death there is no remembrance of you;
in Sheol who will give you praise?
6 I am j weary with my k moaning;
every night I flood my bed with tears;
I drench my couch with my weeping.
7My l eye wastes away because of grief;
it grows weak because of all my foes.
8 m Depart from me, all you n workers of evil,
for the Lord o has heard the sound of my weeping.
9The Lord has heard my p plea;
the Lord accepts my prayer.
10All my enemies shall be ashamed and greatly troubled;
they shall q turn back and be put to shame in a moment.
