Psalm 6

Psalm 6

1: 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.


healed by the LORD

saved because of God’s lovingkindness

thanking God publicly

with enemies that are dismayed
