6:1 For the Leader; with string-music; on the Sheminith. A Psalm of David.

6:2 O the Lord, rebuke me not in Thine anger, neither chasten me in Thy wrath.

6:3 Be gracious unto me, O the Lord, for I languish away; heal me, O the Lord, for my bones are affrighted.

6:4 My soul also is sore affrighted; and Thou, O the Lord, how long?

6:5 Return, O the Lord, deliver my soul; save me for Thy mercy's sake.

6:6 For in death there is no remembrance of Thee; in the nether-world who will give Thee thanks?

6:7 I am weary with my groaning; every night make I my bed to swim; I melt away my couch with my tears.

6:8 Mine eye is dimmed because of vexation; it waxeth old because of all mine adversaries.

6:9 Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the Lord hath heard the voice of my weeping.

6:10 the Lord hath heard my supplication; the Lord receiveth my prayer.

6:11 All mine enemies shall be ashamed and sore affrighted; they shall turn back, they shall be ashamed suddenly.
