Chapter 6

David, by faith, triumpheth. (To the chief Musician on Neginoth upon Sheminith, A Psalm ofDavid.)

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.
