Psalm 6

1O LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger
       or discipline me in your wrath.

 2 Be merciful to me, LORD, for I am faint;
       O LORD, heal me, for my bones are in agony.

 3 My soul is in anguish.
       How long, O LORD, how long?

 4 Turn, O LORD, and deliver me;
       save me because of your unfailing love.

 5 No one remembers you when he is dead.
       Who praises you from the grave?

 6 I am worn out from groaning;
       all night long I flood my bed with weeping
       and drench my couch with tears.

 7 My eyes grow weak with sorrow;
       they fail because of all my foes.

 8 Away from me, all you who do evil,
       for the LORD has heard my weeping.

 9 The LORD has heard my cry for mercy;
       the LORD accepts my prayer.

 10 All my enemies will be ashamed and dismayed;
       they will turn back in sudden disgrace.
