Psalm 6
English Standard VersionHolman Christian Standard Bible
1O LORD, rebuke me not in your anger, nor discipline me in your wrath.1For the choir director: with stringed instruments, according to Sheminith. A Davidic psalm. LORD, do not rebuke me in Your anger; do not discipline me in Your wrath.
2Be gracious to me, O LORD, for I am languishing; heal me, O LORD, for my bones are troubled.2Be gracious to me, LORD, for I am weak; heal me, LORD, for my bones are shaking;
3My soul also is greatly troubled. But you, O LORD—how long?3my whole being is shaken with terror. And You, LORD--how long?
4Turn, O LORD, deliver my life; save me for the sake of your steadfast love.4Turn, LORD! Rescue me; save me because of Your faithful love.
5For in death there is no remembrance of you; in Sheol who will give you praise?5For there is no remembrance of You in death; who can thank You in Sheol?
6I am weary with my moaning; every night I flood my bed with tears; I drench my couch with my weeping.6I am weary from my groaning; with my tears I dampen my pillow and drench my bed every night.
7My eye wastes away because of grief; it grows weak because of all my foes.7My eyes are swollen from grief; they grow old because of all my enemies.
8Depart from me, all you workers of evil, for the LORD has heard the sound of my weeping.8Depart from me, all evildoers, for the LORD has heard the sound of my weeping.
9The LORD has heard my plea; the LORD accepts my prayer.9The LORD has heard my plea for help; the LORD accepts my prayer.
10All my enemies shall be ashamed and greatly troubled; they shall turn back and be put to shame in a moment.10All my enemies will be ashamed and shake with terror; they will turn back and suddenly be disgraced.
