Psalms 6

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  Lordh  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.
