Psalm 6

6
O Lord, Deliver My Life
To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments; according to #1 Chr. 15:21The Sheminith.#6:1 Probably a musical or liturgical term A Psalm of David.
1O Lord, #Ps. 38:1 rebuke me not in your anger,
nor #[Ps. 94:12; 118:18; Prov. 3:11, 12; Jer. 30:11; 46:28]; See Heb. 12:3-11discipline me in your wrath.
2Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am languishing;
# Ps. 30:2; 41:4; 103:3 heal me, O Lord, #See Ps. 31:10for my bones are troubled.
3My #[John 12:27] soul also is greatly troubled.
But you, O Lord#Ps. 90:13how long?
4Turn, O Lord, deliver my life;
save me for the sake of your steadfast love.
5For in #Ps. 30:9; 88:10-12; 115:17; Isa. 38:18death there is no remembrance of you;
in Sheol who will give you praise?
6I am #Ps. 69:3 weary with my #Ps. 38:9moaning;
every night I flood my bed with tears;
I drench my couch with my weeping.
7My #Ps. 31:9; 88:9; [Ps. 38:10; Job 17:7; Lam. 2:11; 5:17]eye wastes away because of grief;
it grows weak because of all my foes.
8 # Ps. 119:115; 139:19; Matt. 7:23; 25:41; Luke 13:27 Depart from me, all you #Ps. 94:4 workers of evil,
for the Lord #[Ps. 3:4]has heard the sound of my weeping.
9The Lord has heard my #Ps. 55:1; 1 Kgs. 8:38plea;
the Lord accepts my prayer.
10All my enemies shall be ashamed and greatly troubled;
they shall #Ps. 40:14; 56:9turn back and be put to shame in a moment.
