Psalm 6

O Lord, do not rebuke me in Your anger, have mercy on me in Your hot displeasure.
Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am weak; O Lord heal me, for my bones are troubled.
My soul also is greatly troubled;
But You, O Lord-how long?
Return, O Lord, deliver me!
Oh, save me for Your mercies’ sake!
For in death there is no remembrance of You;
In the grave who will give You thanks?

I am weary with my groaning;
All night I make my bed swim;
I drench my couch with my tears.
My eye wastes away because of grief;
It grows old because of my enemies.

Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity;
For the Lord has heard the voice of my weeping.
The Lord has heard my supplication;
The Lord will receive my prayer.
Let all my enemies be ashamed and greatly troubled;
Let them turn back and be ashamed suddenly.

~Psalm 6
