Psalm 6
New Living TranslationEnglish Standard Version
1O LORD, don’t rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your rage.1O LORD, rebuke me not in your anger, nor discipline me in your wrath.
2Have compassion on me, LORD, for I am weak. Heal me, LORD, for my bones are in agony.2Be gracious to me, O LORD, for I am languishing; heal me, O LORD, for my bones are troubled.
3I am sick at heart. How long, O LORD, until you restore me?3My soul also is greatly troubled. But you, O LORD—how long?
4Return, O LORD, and rescue me. Save me because of your unfailing love.4Turn, O LORD, deliver my life; save me for the sake of your steadfast love.
5For the dead do not remember you. Who can praise you from the grave?5For in death there is no remembrance of you; in Sheol who will give you praise?
6I am worn out from sobbing. All night I flood my bed with weeping, drenching it with my tears.6I am weary with my moaning; every night I flood my bed with tears; I drench my couch with my weeping.
7My vision is blurred by grief; my eyes are worn out because of all my enemies.7My eye wastes away because of grief; it grows weak because of all my foes.
8Go away, all you who do evil, for the LORD has heard 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 will answer my prayer.9The LORD has heard my plea; the LORD accepts my prayer.
10May all my enemies be disgraced and terrified. May they suddenly turn back in shame.10All my enemies shall be ashamed and greatly troubled; they shall turn back and be put to shame in a moment.
