Psalm 6
New King James VersionNew Living Translation
1To the Chief Musician. With stringed instruments. On an eight-stringed harp. A Psalm of David. O LORD, do not rebuke me in Your anger, Nor chasten me in Your hot displeasure.1O LORD, don’t rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your rage.
2Have mercy on me, O LORD, for I am weak; O LORD, heal me, for my bones are troubled.2Have compassion on me, LORD, for I am weak. Heal me, LORD, for my bones are in agony.
3My soul also is greatly troubled; But You, O LORD—how long?3I am sick at heart. How long, O LORD, until you restore me?
4Return, O LORD, deliver me! Oh, save me for Your mercies’ sake!4Return, O LORD, and rescue me. Save me because of your unfailing love.
5For in death there is no remembrance of You; In the grave who will give You thanks?5For the dead do not remember you. Who can praise you from the grave?
6I am weary with my groaning; All night I make my bed swim; I drench my couch with my tears.6I am worn out from sobbing. All night I flood my bed with weeping, drenching it with my tears.
7My eye wastes away because of grief; It grows old because of all my enemies.7My vision is blurred by grief; my eyes are worn out because of all my enemies.
8Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity; For the LORD has heard the voice of my weeping.8Go away, all you who do evil, for the LORD has heard my weeping.
9The LORD has heard my supplication; The LORD will receive my prayer.9The LORD has heard my plea; the LORD will answer my prayer.
10Let all my enemies be ashamed and greatly troubled; Let them turn back and be ashamed suddenly.10May all my enemies be disgraced and terrified. May they suddenly turn back in shame.
