Psalms 6

Listen to Psalms 6
1 O LORD, 1rebuke me not in your anger, nor 2discipline me in your wrath.
2 Be gracious to me, O LORD, for I am languishing; 3heal me, O LORD, 4for my bones are troubled.
3 My 5soul also is greatly troubled. But you, O LORD--6how long?
4 Turn, O LORD, deliver my life; save me for the sake of your steadfast love.
5 For in 7death there is no remembrance of you; in Sheol who will give you praise?
6 I am 8weary with my 9moaning; every night I flood my bed with tears; I drench my couch with my weeping.
7 My 10eye wastes away because of grief; it grows weak because of all my foes.
8 11Depart from me, all you 12workers of evil, for the LORD 13has heard the sound of my weeping.
9 The LORD has heard my 14plea; the LORD accepts my prayer.
10 All my enemies shall be ashamed and greatly troubled; they shall 15turn back and be put to shame in a moment.
