Psalm 6

    Psalm 6

    David cries unto the Lord for mercy—He asks to be healed and saved.

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

    1 O Lord, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.

    2 Have mercy upon me, O Lord; for I am aweak: O Lord, bheal me; for my bones are vexed.

    3 My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O Lord, how long?

    4 Return, O Lord, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies’ sake.

    5 For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the agrave who shall give thee thanks?

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

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

    8 Depart from me, all ye workers of ainiquity; for the Lord hath heard the voice of my weeping.

    9 The Lord hath heard my supplication; the Lord will receive my prayer.

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