To the chief Musician on Neginoth upon Sheminith, A Psalm of David.
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.
