Psalm 6

English Standard Version

1 To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments; according to The Sheminith.[1] A Psalm of David. O Lord, rebuke me not in your anger, nor discipline me in your wrath. (1Ch 15:21; Ps 38:1; Ps 94:12; Ps 118:18; Pr 3:11; Jer 30:11; Jer 46:28; Heb 12:3) 2 Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am languishing; heal me, O Lord, for my bones are troubled. (Ps 30:2; Ps 31:10; Ps 41:4; Ps 103:3) 3 My soul also is greatly troubled. But you, O Lord—how long? (Ps 90:13; Joh 12:27) 4 Turn, O Lord, deliver my life; save me for the sake of your steadfast love. 5 For in death there is no remembrance of you; in Sheol who will give you praise? (Ps 30:9; Ps 88:10; Ps 115:17; Isa 38:18) 6 I am weary with my moaning; every night I flood my bed with tears; I drench my couch with my weeping. (Ps 38:9; Ps 69:3) 7 My eye wastes away because of grief; it grows weak because of all my foes. (Job 17:7; Ps 31:9; Ps 38:10; Ps 88:9; La 2:11; La 5:17) 8 Depart from me, all you workers of evil, for the Lord has heard the sound of my weeping. (Ps 3:4; Ps 94:4; Ps 119:115; Ps 139:19; Mt 7:23; Mt 25:41; Lu 13:27) 9 The Lord has heard my plea; the Lord accepts my prayer. (1Ki 8:38; Ps 55:1) 10 All my enemies shall be ashamed and greatly troubled; they shall turn back and be put to shame in a moment. (Ps 40:14; Ps 56:9)
