Psalm 6

A PRAYER FOR MERCY

For the choir director: with stringed instruments, according to Sheminith.a A psalm of David.

Lord, do not rebuke me in your anger;

do not discipline me in your wrath.b

Be gracious to me, Lord, for I am weak;A,c

heal me,d Lord, for my bones are shaking;e

my whole being is shaken with terror.f

And you, Lord—how long?g

Turn, Lord! Rescue me;

save me because of your faithful love.h

For there is no remembrance of you in death;

who can thank you in Sheol?i

I am weary from my groaning;j

with my tears I dampen my bed

and drench my couch every night.k

My eyes are swollen from grief;l

they grow old because of all my enemies.

Depart from me, all evildoers,

for the Lord has heard the sound of my weeping.m

The Lord has heard my plea for help;n

the Lord accepts my prayer.o

10 All my enemies will be ashamed and shake with terror;

they will turn backp and suddenly be disgraced.q

About Christian Standard Bible

The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.

The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.

The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.

The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
