Psalm 6 English Standard Version

A Prayer for Mercy in Time of Trouble

6 1  O Lord, rebuke me not in your anger, nor discipline me in your wrath. 2  Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am languishing; heal me, O Lord, for my bones are troubled. 3  My soul also is greatly troubled. But you, O Lord-- how long? 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? 6  I am weary with my moaning; every night I flood my bed with tears; I drench my couch with my weeping. 7  My eye wastes away because of grief; it grows weak because of all my foes.

8  Depart from me, all you workers of evil, for the Lord has heard the sound of my weeping. 9  The Lord has heard my plea; the Lord accepts my prayer. 10  All my enemies shall be ashamed and greatly troubled; they shall turn back and be put to shame in a moment.
