Psalm 6
International Standard VersionEnglish Standard Version
1LORD, in your anger, do not rebuke me, in your wrath, do not discipline me.1O LORD, rebuke me not in your anger, nor discipline me in your wrath.
2Be gracious to me, LORD, because I am fading away. Heal me, because my body is distressed.2Be gracious to me, O LORD, for I am languishing; heal me, O LORD, for my bones are troubled.
3And my soul is deeply distressed. But you, LORD, how long do I wait? 3My soul also is greatly troubled. But you, O LORD—how long?
4Return, LORD, save my life! Deliver me, because of your gracious love.4Turn, O LORD, deliver my life; save me for the sake of your steadfast love.
5In death, there is no memory of you. Who will give you thanks where the dead are? 5For in death there is no remembrance of you; in Sheol who will give you praise?
6I am weary from my groaning. Every night my couch is drenched with tears, my bed is soaked through.6I am weary with my moaning; every night I flood my bed with tears; I drench my couch with my weeping.
7My eyesight has faded because of grief, it has dimmed because of all my enemies.7My eye wastes away because of grief; it grows weak because of all my foes.
8Get away from me, all of you who practice evil, for the LORD has heard the sound of my weeping.8Depart from me, all you workers of evil, for the LORD has heard the sound of my weeping.
9The LORD has heard my plea; the LORD receives my prayer.9The LORD has heard my plea; the LORD accepts my prayer.
10As for all my enemies, they will be put to shame; they will be greatly frightened and suddenly turn away ashamed.10All my enemies shall be ashamed and greatly troubled; they shall turn back and be put to shame in a moment.
