LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger1 or discipline me in your wrath.
Have mercy on me,2 LORD, for I am faint;3 heal me,4 LORD, for my bones are in agony.53
My soul is in deep anguish.6 How long,7 LORD, how long?
Turn,8 LORD, and deliver me; save me because of your unfailing love.95
Among the dead no one proclaims your name. Who praises you from the grave?106
I am worn out11 from my 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 overwhelmed with shame and anguish;19 they will turn back and suddenly be put to shame.20
