Psalm 6

Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Psalm 6

A Prayer for Mercy

For the choir director: with stringed instruments, according to Sheminith. A Davidic psalm.

1 Lord, do not rebuke me in Your anger; do not discipline me in Your wrath. 2 Be gracious to me, Lord, for I am weak;[a] heal me, Lord, for my bones are shaking; 3 my whole being is shaken with terror. And You, Lord—how long?

4 Turn, Lord! Rescue me; save me because of Your faithful love. 5 For there is no remembrance of You in death; who can thank You in Sheol?

6 I am weary from my groaning; with my tears I dampen my pillow[b] and drench my bed every night. 7 My eyes are swollen from grief; they[c] grow old because of all my enemies.

8 Depart from me, all evildoers, for the Lord has heard the sound of my weeping. 9 The Lord has heard my plea for help; the Lord accepts my prayer. 10 All my enemies will be ashamed and shake with terror; they will turn back and suddenly be disgraced.
