JPS Tanakh 1917
1For the Leader; with string-music; on the Sheminith. A Psalm of David.
2O LORD, rebuke me not in Thine anger,
Neither chasten me in Thy wrath.
3Be gracious unto me, O LORD, for I languish away;
Heal me, O LORD, for my bones are affrighted.
4My soul also is sore affrighted;
And Thou, O LORD, how long?
5Return, O LORD, deliver my soul;
Save me for Thy mercy’s sake.
6For in death there is no remembrance of Thee;
In the nether-world who will give Thee thanks?
7I am weary with my groaning;
Every night make I my bed to swim;
I melt away my couch with my tears.
8Mine eye is dimmed because of vexation;
It waxeth old because of all mine adversaries.
9Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity;
For the LORD hath heard the voice of my weeping.
10The LORD hath heard my supplication;
The LORD receiveth my prayer.
11All mine enemies shall be ashamed and sore affrighted;
They shall turn back, they shall be ashamed suddenly.
