Psalm 6

O Lord, Deliver My Life

1 O LORD, a do not rebuke me in Your anger,
Nor chasten me in Your hot displeasure.
2 Have mercy on me, O LORD, for I am weak;
O LORD, b heal me, for my bones are troubled.
3 My soul also is greatly c troubled;
But You, O LORD - how long?

4 Return, O LORD, deliver me!
Oh, save me for Your mercies' sake!
5 d For in death there is no remembrance of You;
In the grave who will give You thanks?

6 I am weary with my groaning;
1 All night I make my bed swim;
I drench my couch with my tears.
7 e My eye wastes away because of grief;
It grows old because of all my enemies.

8 f Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity;
For the LORD has g heard the voice of my weeping.
9 The LORD has heard my supplication;
The LORD will receive my prayer.
10 Let all my enemies be ashamed and greatly troubled;
Let them turn back and be ashamed suddenly.
