Psalms - Chapter 6 | New King James Version

  • 1. To the Chief Musician. With stringed instruments. On an eight-stringed harp. {cf2super [5]} A Psalm of David. O Lord, do not rebuke me in Your anger, Nor chasten me in Your hot displeasure.
  • 2. Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am weak; O Lord, heal me, for my bones are troubled.
  • 3. My soul also is greatly troubled; But You, O Lord--how long?
  • 4. Return, O Lord, deliver me! Oh, save me for Your mercies' sake!
  • 5. For in death there is no remembrance of You; In the grave who will give You thanks?
  • 6. I am weary with my groaning; All night I make my bed swim; I drench my couch with my tears.
  • 7. My eye wastes away because of grief; It grows old because of all my enemies.
  • 8. Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity; For the Lord has heard the voice of my weeping.
  • 9. The Lord has heard my supplication; The Lord will receive my prayer.
  • 10. Let all my enemies be ashamed and greatly troubled; Let them turn back and be ashamed suddenly.
