O LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger1 or discipline me in your wrath.
Be merciful to me,2 LORD, for I am faint;3 O LORD, heal me,4 for my bones are in agony.53
My soul is in anguish.6 How long,7 O LORD, how long?
Turn,8 O LORD, and deliver me; save me because of your unfailing love.95
No one remembers you when he is dead. Who praises you from the gravea ?106
I am worn out11 from groaning;12 all night long I flood my bed with weeping13 and drench my couch with tears.147
My eyes grow weak15 with sorrow; they fail because of all my foes.
Away from me,16 all you who do evil,17 for the LORD has heard my weeping.
The LORD has heard my cry for mercy;18 the LORD accepts my prayer.
All my enemies will be ashamed and dismayed;19 they will turn back in sudden disgrace.20
