Psalm 6

Prayer for Recovery from Grave Illness

To the leader: with stringed instruments; according to The Sheminith. A Psalm of David.

1

O Lord, 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.
