Psalms 6

Prayer for Mercy in Time of Trouble.

For the choir director; with stringed instruments,
Or according to a lower octave (Heb Sheminith)
upon an eight-string lyre. A Psalm of David.

O  Lord, b do not rebuke me in Your anger,
Nor chasten me in Your wrath.
Be gracious to me, O  Lord, for I am c pining away;
d Heal me, O  Lord, for e my bones are dismayed.
And my f soul is greatly dismayed;
But You, O  Lordg how long?

Return, O  Lord h rescue my
Or life
Save me because of Your lovingkindness.
For j there is no
Or remembrance
mention of You in death;
I.e. the nether world
Sheol who will give You thanks?

I am m weary with my sighing;
Every night I make my bed swim,
I dissolve my couch with n my tears.
My o eye has wasted away with grief;
It has become old because of all my adversaries.

p Depart from me, all you who do iniquity,
For the  Lord q has heard the voice of my weeping.
The  Lord r has heard my supplication,
The  Lord s receives my prayer.
10 All my enemies will t be ashamed and greatly dismayed;
They shall
Or again be ashamed suddenly
turn back, they will v suddenly be ashamed.
