Lord, don't be angry and rebuke me! 1 Don't punish me in your anger!
I am worn out, O Lord; have pity on me! Give me strength; I am completely exhausted
and my whole being is deeply troubled. How long, O Lord, will you wait to help me?
Come and save me, Lord; in your mercy rescue me from death.
In the world of the dead you are not remembered; no one can praise you there.
I am worn out with grief; every night my bed is damp from my weeping; my pillow is soaked with tears.
I can hardly see; my eyes are so swollen from the weeping caused by my enemies.
Keep away from me, you evil people! 2 The Lord hears my weeping;
he listens to my cry for help and will answer my prayer.
My enemies will know the bitter shame of defeat; in sudden confusion they will be driven away.
