Psalm 6
English Standard VersionNew International Version
1O LORD, rebuke me not in your anger, nor discipline me in your wrath.1For the director of music. With stringed instruments. According to sheminith. A psalm of David. LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your wrath.
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 faint; heal me, LORD, for my bones are in agony.
3My soul also is greatly troubled. But you, O LORD—how long?3My soul is in deep anguish. How long, LORD, how long?
4Turn, O LORD, deliver my life; save me for the sake of your steadfast love.4Turn, LORD, and deliver me; save me because of your unfailing love.
5For in death there is no remembrance of you; in Sheol who will give you praise?5Among the dead no one proclaims your name. Who praises you from the grave?
6I am weary with my moaning; every night I flood my bed with tears; I drench my couch with my weeping.6I am worn out from my groaning. All night long I flood my bed with weeping and drench my couch with tears.
7My eye wastes away because of grief; it grows weak because of all my foes.7My eyes grow weak with sorrow; they fail because of all my foes.
8Depart from me, all you workers of evil, for the LORD has heard the sound of my weeping.8Away from me, all you who do evil, for the LORD has heard my weeping.
9The LORD has heard my plea; the LORD accepts my prayer.9The LORD has heard my cry for mercy; 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 overwhelmed with shame and anguish; they will turn back and suddenly be put to shame.
