Psalm 6
English Standard VersionNET Bible
1O LORD, rebuke me not in your anger, nor discipline me in your wrath.1For the music director, to be accompanied by stringed instruments, according to the sheminith style; a psalm of David. LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger! Do not discipline me in your raging fury!
2Be gracious to me, O LORD, for I am languishing; heal me, O LORD, for my bones are troubled.2Have mercy on me, LORD, for I am frail! Heal me, LORD, for my bones are shaking!
3My soul also is greatly troubled. But you, O LORD—how long?3I am absolutely terrified, and you, LORD--how long will this continue?
4Turn, O LORD, deliver my life; save me for the sake of your steadfast love.4Relent, LORD, rescue me! Deliver me because of your faithfulness!
5For in death there is no remembrance of you; in Sheol who will give you praise?5For no one remembers you in the realm of death, In Sheol who gives you thanks?
6I am weary with my moaning; every night I flood my bed with tears; I drench my couch with my weeping.6I am exhausted as I groan; all night long I drench my bed in tears; my tears saturate the cushion beneath me.
7My eye wastes away because of grief; it grows weak because of all my foes.7My eyes grow dim from suffering; they grow weak because of all my enemies.
8Depart from me, all you workers of evil, for the LORD has heard the sound of my weeping.8Turn back from me, all you who behave wickedly, 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 appeal for mercy; the LORD has accepted my prayer.
10All my enemies shall be ashamed and greatly troubled; they shall turn back and be put to shame in a moment.10May all my enemies be humiliated and absolutely terrified! May they turn back and be suddenly humiliated!
