Psalms 6

To the chief Musician on Neginoth upon Sheminith, A Psalm of Dawid.

1 O יהוה, rebuke me not in Your anger, neither chasten me in Your hot displeasure.

2 Have mercy upon me, O יהוה; for I am weak; O יהוה, heal me; for my bones are vexed.

3 My soul is also sore vexed; but You, O יהוה, how long?

4 Return, O יהוה, deliver my soul! Oh save me for Your mercies’ sake.

5 For in death there is no remembrance of You; in the grave (sheol) who shall give You thanks?

6 I am weary with my groaning; all the night makes I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears.

7 Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because of all mine enemies.

8 Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity; for יהוה hath heard the voice of my weeping.

9 יהוה hath heard my supplication; יהוה will receive my prayer.

10 Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed; let them return and be ashamed suddenly.
