Psalm 6 New Living Translation

A Prayer for Mercy in Time of Trouble

6 1  O Lord, don't rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your rage. 2  Have compassion on me, Lord, for I am weak. Heal me, Lord, for my bones are in agony. 3  I am sick at heart. How long, O Lord, until you restore me? 4  Return, O Lord, and rescue me. Save me because of your unfailing love. 5  For the dead do not remember you. Who can praise you from the grave? 6  I am worn out from sobbing. All night I flood my bed with weeping, drenching it with my tears. 7  My vision is blurred by grief; my eyes are worn out because of all my enemies.

8  Go away, all you who do evil, for the Lord has heard my weeping. 9  The Lord has heard my plea; the Lord will answer my prayer. 10  May all my enemies be disgraced and terrified. May they suddenly turn back in shame.
