For the choir director; with stringed instruments, upon  Sheminit (שׁמינית). A Psalm of David.

Tefillah for Mercy in time of Trouble

6:1 O YHWH (יהוה), rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in Your wrath.

6:2 Have mercy upon me, O YHWH (יהוה); for I [am] weak: O YHWH (יהוה), heal me; for my bones are vexed.

6:3 My nefesh is greatly dismayed: but thou, O YHWH (יהוה), how long?

6:4 Return, O YHWH (יהוה), deliver my nefesh: hoshieini (save me) for thy mercies' sake.

6:5 For in death [there is] no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?

6:6 I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears.

6:7 Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxed old because of all mine adversaries.

6:8 Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the YHWH (יהוה) hath heard the voice of my weeping.

6:9 YHWH (יהוה) hath heard my supplication; the YHWH (יהוה) will receive my tefillah.

6:10 Let all mine adversaries be ashamed and greatly dismayed: let them return [and] be ashamed suddenly.
