Psalm 6
Christian Standard BibleNET Bible
1LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger; do not discipline me in your wrath.1For the music director, to be accompanied by stringed instruments, according to the sheminith style; a psalm of David. LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger! Do not discipline me in your raging fury!
2Be gracious to me, LORD, for I am weak; heal me, LORD, for my bones are shaking;2Have mercy on me, LORD, for I am frail! Heal me, LORD, for my bones are shaking!
3my whole being is shaken with terror. And you, LORD--how long?3I am absolutely terrified, and you, LORD--how long will this continue?
4Turn, LORD! Rescue me; save me because of your faithful love.4Relent, LORD, rescue me! Deliver me because of your faithfulness!
5For there is no remembrance of you in death; who can thank you in Sheol?5For no one remembers you in the realm of death, In Sheol who gives you thanks?
6I am weary from my groaning; with my tears I dampen my bed and drench my couch every night.6I am exhausted as I groan; all night long I drench my bed in tears; my tears saturate the cushion beneath me.
7My eyes are swollen from grief; they grow old because of all my enemies.7My eyes grow dim from suffering; they grow weak because of all my enemies.
8Depart from me, all evildoers, for the LORD has heard the sound of my weeping.8Turn back from me, all you who behave wickedly, for the LORD has heard the sound of my weeping!
9The LORD has heard my plea for help; the LORD accepts my prayer.9The LORD has heard my appeal for mercy; the LORD has accepted my prayer.
10All my enemies will be ashamed and shake with terror; they will turn back and suddenly be disgraced.10May all my enemies be humiliated and absolutely terrified! May they turn back and be suddenly humiliated!
