A Prayer for Help in Time of Trouble HEBREW TITLE: A psalm by David. 6 1LORD, don't be angry and rebuke me! Don't punish me in your anger! 2I am worn out, O LORD; have pity on me! Give me strength; I am completely exhausted 3and my whole being is deeply troubled. How long, O LORD, will you wait to help me? 4Come and save me, LORD; in your mercy rescue me from death. 5In the world of the dead you are not remembered; no one can praise you there. 6I am worn out with grief; every night my bed is damp from my weeping; my pillow is soaked with tears. 7I can hardly see; my eyes are so swollen from the weeping caused by my enemies. 8 Keep away from me, you evil people! The LORD hears my weeping; 9he listens to my cry for help and will answer my prayer. 10My enemies will know the bitter shame of defeat; in sudden confusion they will be driven away.
