For the choir director: A psalm of David, to be accompanied by an eight-stringed instrument.[H] 6 1O Lord, don’t rebuke me in Your anger or discipline me in Your rage. 2Have compassion on me, Lord, for I am weak. Heal me, Lord, for my bones are in agony. 3I am sick at heart. How long, O Lord, until You restore me? 4Return, O Lord, and rescue me. Save me because of Your unfailing love. 5For the dead do not remember You. Who can praise You from the grave?[I] 6I am worn out from sobbing. All night I flood my bed with weeping, drenching it with my tears. 7My vision is blurred by grief; my eyes are worn out because of all my enemies. 8Go away, all you who do evil, for the Lord has heard my weeping. 9The Lord has heard my plea; the Lord will answer my prayer. 10May all my enemies be disgraced and terrified. May they suddenly turn back in shame.
