Tehillim (Psalms) 6
1O יהוה, do not rebuke me in Your displeasure, Nor discipline me in Your wrath.
2Show favour to me, O יהוה, for I am fading away; O יהוה, heal me, for my bones have been troubled.
3And my being has been greatly troubled; And You, O יהוה – till when?
4Return, O יהוה, rescue my life! Oh, save me for Your loving-commitment’ sake!
5For in death there is no remembrance of You; Who gives You thanks in She’ol?
6I have grown weary with my groaning; Every night I flood my bed; I drench my couch with my tears.
7My eye has grown dim because of grief; It grows old because of all my adversaries.
8Depart from me, all you workers of wickedness; For יהוה has heard the voice of my weeping.
9יהוה has heard my pleading; יהוה receives my prayer.
10Let all my enemies be ashamed and greatly troubled; They turn back suddenly, ashamed.
