Psalm 6

1  (To the chief Musician on Neginoth upon Sheminith, A Psalm of David.) O LORD, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.

2  Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed.

3  My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O LORD, how long?

4  Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies' sake.

5  For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?

6  I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears.

7  Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because of all mine enemies.

8  Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the LORD hath heard the voice of my weeping.

9  The LORD hath heard my supplication; the LORD will receive my prayer.

10  Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let them return and be ashamed suddenly.
