Psalm 6

Prayer for Recovery from Grave Illness

To the leader: with stringed instruments; according to The Sheminith. A Psalm of David.
1Lord, do not rebuke me in your anger,
   or discipline me in your wrath.
2 Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am languishing;
   O Lord, heal me, for my bones are shaking with terror.
3 My soul also is struck with terror,
   while you, O Lord—how long?


4 Turn, O Lord, save my life;
   deliver me for the sake of your steadfast love.
5 For in death there is no remembrance of you;
   in Sheol who can give you praise?


6 I am weary with my moaning;
   every night I flood my bed with tears;
   I drench my couch with my weeping.
7 My eyes waste away because of grief;
   they grow weak because of all my foes.


8 Depart from me, all you workers of evil,
   for the Lord has heard the sound of my weeping.
9 The Lord has heard my supplication;
   the Lord accepts my prayer.
10 All my enemies shall be ashamed and struck with terror;
   they shall turn back, and in a moment be put to shame.
