Psalms 6 (asv)

Psalms 6 (asv)

For the Chief Musician; on stringed instruments, set to the Sheminith. A Psalm of David.

6:1O Jehovah, rebuke me not in thine anger,

Neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.

6:2Have mercy upon me, O Jehovah; for I am withered away:

O Jehovah, heal me; for my bones are troubled.

6:3My soul also is sore troubled:

And thou, O Jehovah, how long?

6:4Return, O Jehovah, deliver my soul:

Save me for thy lovingkindness' sake.

6:5For in death there is no remembrance of thee:

In Sheol who shall give thee thanks?

6:6I am weary with my groaning;

Every night make I my bed to swim;

I water my couch with my tears.

6:7Mine eye wasteth away because of grief;

It waxeth old because of all mine adversaries.

6:8Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity;

For Jehovah hath heard the voice of my weeping.

6:9Jehovah hath heard my supplication;

Jehovah will receive my prayer.

6:10All mine enemies shall be put to shame and sore troubled:

They shall turn back, they shall be put to shame suddenly.
