The Book of Psalms

Psalm 6

Domine, ne in furore.

A prayer of a penitent sinner, under the scourge of God. The first penitential psalm.


1
Unto the end, in verses, a psalm for David, for the octave.

2
O Lord, rebuke me not in thy indignation, nor chastise me in thy wrath.

3
Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am weak: heal me, O Lord, for my bones are troubled.

4
And my soul is troubled exceedingly: but thou, O Lord, how long?

5
Turn to me, O Lord, and deliver my soul: O save me for thy mercy's sake.

6
For there is no one in death, that is mindful of thee: and who shall confess to thee in hell?

7
I have laboured in my groanings, every night I will wash my bed: I will water my couch with my tears.

8
My eye is troubled through indignation: I have grown old amongst all my enemies.

9
Depart from em, all ye workers of iniquity: for the Lord hath heard the voice of my weeping.

10
The Lord hath heard my supplication: the Lord hath received my prayer.

11
Let all my enemies be ashamed, and be very much troubled: let them be turned back, and be ashamed very speedily.
