Psalm 6  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 4
To the chief Musician on Neginoth [or, stringed instruments] upon Sheminith [or, the eighth], A Psalm of David.
O Jehovah, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.
Have mercy upon me, O Jehovah; for I am weak: O Jehovah, heal me; for my bones are vexed.
My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O Jehovah, how long?
Return, O Jehovah, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies' sake.
For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?
I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears. Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because of all mine enemies.
Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for Jehovah hath heard the voice of my weeping.
Jehovah hath heard my supplication; Jehovah will receive my prayer.
Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let is them return and be ashamed suddenly.
6:1-7 Cry for pity to Jehovah; 8 away you wicked! 9 Jehovah has heard me; 10 let my enemies pass.
