Bay Psalm Book: Psalm 6

To the chief Musician on Neginoth upon- Sheminith, A Psalm of David

1 LORD in thy wrath rebuke me not,

nor in thy hot wrath chasten me.

2 Pity me, Lord, for I am weak:

Lord, heal me; for my bones vex’d be.

3 Also my soul is troubled sore:

how long, Lord, wilt thou me forsake?

4 Return, O Lord, my soul release:

oh save me for thy mercy sake.

5 In death no mem’ry is of thee:

and who shall praise thee in the grave?

6 I faint with groans; all night my bed

swims; I with tears my couch wash’d have.

7 Mine eye with grief is dim and old

because of all mine enemies.

8 But now depart away from me,

all ye that work iniquities;

for Jehovah ev’n now hath heard

the voice of these my weeping tears.

9 Jehovah heard my humble suit;

Jehovah doth receive my prayers.

10 Let all mine enemies be asham’d

and greatly troubled let them be:

yea let them be returned back

and be ashamed suddenly.
