Psalms 6

Darby Translation

1{To the chief Musician. On stringed instruments, upon Sheminith. A Psalm of David.} Jehovah, rebuke me not in thine anger, and chasten me not in thy hot displeasure.
2Be gracious unto me, Jehovah, for I am withered; Jehovah, heal me, for my bones tremble.
3And my soul trembleth exceedingly: and thou, Jehovah, till how long?
4Return, Jehovah, free my soul; save me for thy loving-kindness' sake.
5For in death there is no remembrance of thee; in Sheol who shall give thanks unto thee?
6I am wearied with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I dissolve my couch with my tears.
7Mine eye wasteth away through grief; it hath grown old because of all mine oppressors.
8Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for Jehovah hath heard the voice of my weeping.
9Jehovah hath heard my supplication; Jehovah receiveth my prayer.
10All mine enemies shall be ashamed and tremble exceedingly; they will turn, they will be ashamed suddenly.
