A Prayer for Mercy

For the choir director: with stringed instruments, according to Sheminith. A Davidic psalm.

1 Lord, do not rebuke me in Your anger; do not discipline me in Your wrath.a 2 Be gracious to me, Lord, for I am weak;b heal me, Lord, for my bones are shaking; 3 my whole being is shaken with terror. And You, Lord-how long? 4 Turn, Lord! Rescue me; save me because of Your faithful love. 5 For there is no remembrance of You in death; who can thank You in Sheol?c 6 I am weary from my groaning; with my tears I dampen my pillowd and drench my bed every night. 7 My eyes are swollen from grief; theye grow old because of all my enemies. 8 Depart from me, all evildoers, for the Lord has heard the sound of my weeping. 9 The Lord has heard my plea for help; the Lord accepts my prayer.f 10 All my enemies will be ashamed and shake with terror; they will turn back and suddenly be disgraced.
