|[To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments; according to The Sheminith. A Psalm of David.]||Penitential Psalm - Rebuke me not, O Lord. Psalm 6|
|O LORD, rebuke me not in thy anger, |
nor chasten me in thy wrath.
|Be gracious to me, O LORD, for I am languishing; |
O LORD, heal me, for my bones are troubled.
|My soul also is sorely troubled. |
But thou, O LORD - how long?
|Turn, O LORD, save my life; |
deliver me for the sake of thy steadfast love.
|For in death there is no remembrance of thee; |
in Sheol who can give thee praise?
|I am weary with my moaning; |
every night I flood my bed with tears;
I drench my couch with my weeping.
|My eye wastes away because of grief, |
it grows weak because of all my foes.
|Depart from me, all you workers of evil; |
for the LORD has heard the sound of my weeping.
|The LORD has heard my supplication; |
the LORD accepts my prayer.
|All my enemies shall be ashamed and sorely troubled; |
they shall turn back, and be put to shame in a moment.
