Psalm 6 A Prayer for Mercy For the choir director: with stringed instruments, according to Sheminith. A Davidic psalm. 6 1Lord, do not rebuke me in Your anger; do not discipline me in Your wrath. 2Be gracious to me, Lord, for I am weak;[C] heal me, Lord, for my bones are shaking; 3my whole being is shaken with terror. And You, Lord—how long? 4Turn, Lord! Rescue me; save me because of Your faithful love. 5For there is no remembrance of You in death; who can thank You in Sheol? 6I am weary from my groaning; with my tears I dampen my pillow[D] and drench my bed every night. 7My eyes are swollen from grief; they[E] grow old because of all my enemies. 8Depart from me, all evildoers, for the Lord has heard the sound of my weeping. 9The Lord has heard my plea for help; the Lord accepts my prayer. 10All my enemies will be ashamed and shake with terror; they will turn back and suddenly be disgraced.
