Psalm 6:1–10

O Yahweh, do not rebuke me in your anger,

and do not discipline me in your wrath.

Be gracious to me, O Yahweh, because I am feeble.

Heal me, O Yahweh, for my bones are terrified.

My soul is also very terrified.

But you, O Yahweh, how long?

Turn, O Yahweh; deliver my life.c

Save me for the sake of your steadfast love.d

For there is no remembrance of you in death.

In Sheol, who will give thanks to you?

I am weary with my groaning;

I floode my bed every night.

With my tears I drenchf my couch.

My eye wastes away because of vexation;

it grows old because of all my oppressors.

Depart from me, all workers of evil,

for Yahweh has heard the sound of my weeping.

Yahweh has heard my plea;

Yahweh has accepted my prayer.

10 All my enemies shall be ashamed and shall be very terrified.

They shall turn back; they shall suddenly be ashamed.
