{To the chief Musician.
On stringed instruments, upon Sheminith.
A Psalm of David.}
Jehovah, rebuke me not in thine anger, and chasten me not in thy hot displeasure.
2
Be gracious unto me, Jehovah, for I am withered;
Jehovah, heal me, for my bones tremble.
3
And my soul trembleth exceedingly: and thou, Jehovah, till how long?
4
Return, Jehovah, free my soul;
save me for thy loving-kindness' sake.
5
For in death there is no remembrance of thee;
in Sheol who shall give thanks unto thee?
6
I am wearied with my groaning;
all the night make I my bed to swim;
I dissolve my couch with my tears.
7
Mine eye wasteth away through grief;
it hath grown old because of all mine oppressors.
8
Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity;
for Jehovah hath heard the voice of my weeping.
9
Jehovah hath heard my supplication;
Jehovah receiveth my prayer.
10
All mine enemies shall be ashamed and tremble exceedingly;
they will turn, they will be ashamed suddenly.
