Psalm 6

A psalm of David.

1 O LORD , do not rebuke me in your anger

or discipline me in your wrath.

2 Be merciful to me, LORD , for I am faint;

O LORD , heal me, for my bones are in agony.

3 My soul is in anguish.

How long, O LORD , how long?

4 Turn, O LORD , and deliver me;

save me because of your unfailing love.

5 No one remembers you when he is dead.

Who praises you from the grave?

6 I am worn out from groaning;

all night long I flood my bed with weeping

and drench my couch with tears.

7 My eyes grow weak with sorrow;

they fail because of all my foes.

8 Away from me, all you who do evil,

for the LORD has heard my weeping.

9 The LORD has heard my cry for mercy;

the LORD accepts my prayer.

10 All my enemies will be ashamed and dismayed;

they will turn back in sudden disgrace.
