Psalm 6 To the Chief Musician; on stringed instruments, set [possibly] an octave below. A Psalm of David. 6 1O LORD, rebuke me not in Your anger nor discipline and chasten me in Your hot displeasure. 2Have mercy on me and be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am weak (faint and withered away); O Lord, heal me, for my bones are troubled. 3My [inner] self [as well as my body] is also exceedingly disturbed and troubled. But You, O Lord, how long [until You return and speak peace to me]? 4Return [to my relief], O Lord, deliver my life; save me for the sake of Your steadfast love and mercy. 5For in death there is no remembrance of You; in Sheol (the place of the dead) who will give You thanks? 6I am weary with my groaning; all night I soak my pillow with tears, I drench my couch with my weeping. 7My eye grows dim because of grief; it grows old because of all my enemies. 8Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity, for the Lord has heard the voice of my weeping. 9The Lord has heard my supplication; the Lord receives my prayer. 10Let all my enemies be ashamed and sorely troubled; let them turn back and be put to shame suddenly.
