Passage: Psalms 6 (RSV)

Psalms 6

A Shiggaion of David, which he sang to the LORD concerning Cush a Benjaminite.

1O LORD, rebuke me not in thy anger, nor chasten me in thy wrath.
2Be gracious to me, O LORD, for I am languishing; O LORD, heal me, for my bones are troubled.
3My soul also is sorely troubled. But thou, O LORD -- how long?
4Turn, O LORD, save my life; deliver me for the sake of thy steadfast love.
5For in death there is no remembrance of thee; in Sheol who can give thee praise?
6I am weary with my moaning; every night I flood my bed with tears; I drench my couch with my weeping.
7My eye wastes away because of grief, it grows weak because of all my foes.
8Depart from me, all you workers of evil; for the LORD has heard the sound of my weeping.
9The LORD has heard my supplication; the LORD accepts my prayer.
10All my enemies shall be ashamed and sorely troubled; they shall turn back, and be put to shame in a moment.
