Psalm 6
New Living TranslationInternational Standard Version
1O LORD, don’t rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your rage.1LORD, in your anger, do not rebuke me, in your wrath, do not discipline me.
2Have compassion on me, LORD, for I am weak. Heal me, LORD, for my bones are in agony.2Be gracious to me, LORD, because I am fading away. Heal me, because my body is distressed.
3I am sick at heart. How long, O LORD, until you restore me?3And my soul is deeply distressed. But you, LORD, how long do I wait?
4Return, O LORD, and rescue me. Save me because of your unfailing love.4Return, LORD, save my life! Deliver me, because of your gracious love.
5For the dead do not remember you. Who can praise you from the grave?5In death, there is no memory of you. Who will give you thanks where the dead are?
6I am worn out from sobbing. All night I flood my bed with weeping, drenching it with my tears.6I am weary from my groaning. Every night my couch is drenched with tears, my bed is soaked through.
7My vision is blurred by grief; my eyes are worn out because of all my enemies.7My eyesight has faded because of grief, it has dimmed because of all my enemies.
8Go away, all you who do evil, for the LORD has heard my weeping.8Get away from me, all of you who practice 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 receives my prayer.
10May all my enemies be disgraced and terrified. May they suddenly turn back in shame.10As for all my enemies, they will be put to shame; they will be greatly frightened and suddenly turn away ashamed.
