Psalm 6
World English Bible

Don't Rebuke Me in Your Anger

1Yahweh, don't rebuke me in your anger, neither discipline me in your wrath.

2Have mercy on me, Yahweh, for I am faint. Yahweh, heal me, for my bones are troubled.

3My soul is also in great anguish. But you, Yahweh—how long?

4Return, Yahweh. Deliver my soul, and save me for your loving kindness' sake.

5For in death there is no memory of you. In Sheol, who shall give you thanks?

6I am weary with my groaning. Every night I flood my bed. I drench my couch with my tears.

7My eye wastes away because of grief. It grows old because of all my adversaries.

8Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity, for Yahweh has heard the voice of my weeping.

9Yahweh has heard my supplication. Yahweh accepts my prayer.

10May all my enemies be ashamed and dismayed. They shall turn back, they shall be disgraced suddenly. A meditation by David, which he sang to Yahweh, concerning the words of Cush, the Benjamite.
