Psalm 6
Christian Standard BibleKing James Bible
1LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger; do not discipline me in your wrath.1To the chief Musician on Neginoth upon Sheminith, A Psalm of David. O LORD, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.
2Be gracious to me, LORD, for I am weak; heal me, LORD, for my bones are shaking;2Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed.
3my whole being is shaken with terror. And you, LORD--how long?3My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O LORD, how long?
4Turn, LORD! Rescue me; save me because of your faithful love.4Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies' sake.
5For there is no remembrance of you in death; who can thank you in Sheol?5For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?
6I am weary from my groaning; with my tears I dampen my bed and drench my couch every night.6I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears.
7My eyes are swollen from grief; they grow old because of all my enemies.7Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because of all mine enemies.
8Depart from me, all evildoers, for the LORD has heard the sound of my weeping.8Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the LORD hath heard the voice of my weeping.
9The LORD has heard my plea for help; the LORD accepts my prayer.9The LORD hath heard my supplication; the LORD will receive my prayer.
10All my enemies will be ashamed and shake with terror; they will turn back and suddenly be disgraced.10Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let them return and be ashamed suddenly.
