Prayer for Mercy in Time of Trouble.

1 O LORD, 1do not rebuke me in Your anger, Nor chasten me in Your wrath.
2 Be gracious to me, O LORD, for I am 2pining away; 3Heal me, O LORD, for 4my bones are dismayed.
3 And my 5soul is greatly dismayed; But You, O LORD -6how long *?
5 For 8there is no mention of You in death; In Sheol who will give You thanks?
6 I am 9weary with my sighing; Every night I make my bed swim, I dissolve my couch with 10my tears.
7 My 11eye has wasted away with grief; It has become old because of all my adversaries.
8 12Depart from me, all you who do iniquity, For the LORD 13has heard the voice of my weeping.
9 The LORD 14has heard my supplication, The LORD 15receives my prayer.
10 All my enemies will 16be ashamed and greatly dismayed; They shall turn back, they will 17suddenly be ashamed.
