A Prayer for Mercy
For the choir director: with stringed instruments, according to Sheminith. # 1Ch 15:21; Ps 12 title A Davidic psalm.
1Lord, do not rebuke me in Your anger;
do not discipline me in Your wrath. # Ps 38:1; Jr 10:24
2Be gracious to me, Lord, for I am weak; # Or sick # Ps 142:6
heal me, # Ps 41:4; Jr 17:14 Lord, for my bones are shaking; # Jb 4:14
3my whole being is shaken with terror. # Jb 9:28; Jn 12:27
And You, Lord — how long? # Nm 14:27; Ps 13:1-2; 35:17; 79:5; 80:4
4Turn, Lord! Rescue me;
save me because of Your faithful love. # Ps 31:16; 109:26
5For there is no remembrance of You in death;
who can thank You in Sheol? # Ps 30:9; 88:10-12; 115:17; Ec 9:10; Is 38:18
6I am weary from my groaning; # Ps 69:3; 119:28
with my tears I dampen my pillow # Lit bed
and drench my bed every night. # Ps 42:3; 102:9
7My eyes are swollen from grief; # Jb 17:7; Ps 31:9; 88:9
they # LXX, Aq, Sym, Jer read I grow old because of all my enemies.
8Depart from me, all evildoers,
for the Lord has heard the sound of my weeping. # Ps 18:6; 34:6; 40:1
9The Lord has heard my plea for help; # Ps 28:6
the Lord accepts my prayer. # Ps 3:4; 66:19-20
10All my enemies will be ashamed and shake with terror;
they will turn back # Ex 23:27 and suddenly be disgraced. # Ps 71:13
