Psalm 6

To the chief Musician. On stringed instruments, upon Sheminith. A Psalm of David.

1 Jehovah, rebuke me not in thine anger, and chasten me not in thy hot displeasure. 2 Be gracious unto me, Jehovah, for I am withered; Jehovah, heal me, for my bones tremble. 3 And my soul trembleth exceedingly: and thou, Jehovah, till how long? 4 Return, Jehovah, free my soul; save me for thy loving-kindness’ sake. 5 For in death there is no remembrance of thee; in Sheol who shall give thanks unto thee? 6 I am wearied with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I dissolve my couch with my tears. 7 Mine eye wasteth away through grief; it hath grown old because of all mine oppressors.

8  Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for Jehovah hath heard the voice of my weeping. 9  Jehovah hath heard my supplication; Jehovah receiveth my prayer. 10  All mine enemies shall be ashamed and tremble exceedingly; they will turn, they will be ashamed suddenly.

First published in 1890, this translation comes after Darby's understanding of the original languages matured during the writing of his French and German translations of the Bible.
