PSALM 6[S] Prayer in Distress 6 1For the leader; with stringed instruments, “upon the eighth.”[T] A psalm of David. I 2Do not reprove me in your anger, LORD, nor punish me in your wrath. 3Have pity on me, LORD, for I am weak; heal me, LORD, for my bones are shuddering. 4My soul too is shuddering greatly— and you, LORD, how long…?[U] 5Turn back, LORD, rescue my soul; save me because of your mercy. 6For in death there is no remembrance of you. Who praises you in Sheol?[V] II 7I am wearied with sighing; all night long I drench my bed with tears; I soak my couch with weeping. 8My eyes are dimmed with sorrow, worn out because of all my foes. III 9Away from me, all who do evil! The LORD has heard the sound of my weeping. 10The LORD has heard my plea; the LORD will receive my prayer. 11My foes will all be disgraced and will shudder greatly; they will turn back in sudden disgrace.
