Psalms 6

A Prayer of Faith in Time of Distress
To the Chief Musician. With stringed instruments. #Ps. 12:titleOn an eight-stringed harp. A Psalm of David.
1O Lord, #Ps. 38:1; 118:18; (Jer. 10:24)do not rebuke me in Your anger,
Nor chasten me in Your hot displeasure.
2Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am weak;
O Lord, #Ps. 41:4; 147:3; (Hos. 6:1)heal me, for my bones are troubled.
3My soul also is greatly #Ps. 88:3; John 12:27troubled;
But You, O Lord—how long?
4Return, O Lord, deliver me!
Oh, save me for Your mercies’ sake!
5#Ps. 30:9; 88:10–12; 115:17; (Eccl. 9:10); Is. 38:18For in death there is no remembrance of You;
In the grave who will give You thanks?
6I am weary with my groaning;
All night I make my bed swim;
I drench my couch with my tears.
7#Job 17:7; Ps. 31:9My eye wastes away because of grief;
It grows old because of all my enemies.
8#(Matt. 25:41)Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity;
For the Lord has #Ps. 3:4; 28:6heard the voice of my weeping.
9The Lord has heard my supplication;
The Lord will receive my prayer.
10Let all my enemies be ashamed and greatly troubled;
Let them turn back and be ashamed suddenly.
