Psalm 6 GW/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 O LORD, do not punish me in your anger or discipline me in your rage. 1 O LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your wrath.
2 Have pity on me, O LORD, because I am weak. Heal me, O LORD, because my bones shake with terror. 2 Be merciful to me, LORD, for I am faint; O LORD, heal me, for my bones are in agony.
3 My soul has been deeply shaken with terror. But you, O LORD, how long...? 3 My soul is in anguish. How long, O LORD, how long?
4 Come back, O LORD. Rescue me. Save me because of your mercy! 4 Turn, O LORD, and deliver me; save me because of your unfailing love.
5 In death, no one remembers you. In the grave, who praises you? 5 No one remembers you when he is dead. Who praises you from the grave ?
6 I am worn out from my groaning. My eyes flood my bed every night. I soak my couch with tears. 6 I am worn out from groaning; all night long I flood my bed with weeping and drench my couch with tears.
7 My eyes blur from grief. They fail because of my enemies. 7 My eyes grow weak with sorrow; they fail because of all my foes.
8 Get away from me, all you troublemakers, because the LORD has heard the sound of my crying. 8 Away from me, all you who do evil, for the LORD has heard my weeping.
9 The LORD has heard my plea for mercy. The LORD accepts my prayer. 9 The LORD has heard my cry for mercy; the LORD accepts my prayer.
10 All my enemies will be put to shame and deeply shaken with terror. In a moment they will retreat and be put to shame. 10 All my enemies will be ashamed and dismayed; they will turn back in sudden disgrace.
