The first book of Psalms, song 6, New English Translation

Psalm 6

   For the music director, to be accompanied by stringed instruments, according to the sheminith style; a psalm of David.
   1 LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger! Do not discipline me in your raging fury!
   2 Have mercy on me, LORD, for I am frail! Heal me, LORD, for my bones are shaking!
   3 I am absolutely terrified, and you, LORD - how long will this continue?
   4 Relent, LORD, rescue me! Deliver me because of your faithfulness!
   5 For no one remembers you in the realm of death, In Sheol who gives you thanks?
   6 I am exhausted as I groan; all night long I drench my bed in tears; my tears saturate the cushion beneath me.
   7 My eyes grow dim from suffering; they grow weak because of all my enemies.
   8 Turn back from me, all you who behave wickedly, for the LORD has heard the sound of my weeping!
   9 The LORD has heard my appeal for mercy; the LORD has accepted my prayer.
   10 May all my enemies be humiliated and absolutely terrified! May they turn back and be suddenly humiliated!
