1O Lord, ⚓do not rebuke me in Your anger,
A Prayer of Faith in Time of DistressTo the Chief Musician. With stringed instruments. ⚓On an eight-stringed harp. A Psalm of David.
Nor chasten me in Your hot displeasure.
2Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am weak;
O Lord, ⚓heal me, for my bones are troubled.
3My soul also is greatly ⚓troubled;
But You, O Lord—how long?
4Return, O Lord, deliver me!
Oh, save me for Your mercies’ sake!
5⚓For in death there is no remembrance of You;
In the grave who will give You thanks?
6I am weary with my groaning;
All night I make my bed swim;
I drench my couch with my tears.
7⚓My eye wastes away because of grief;
It grows old because of all my enemies.
8⚓Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity;
For the Lord has ⚓heard the voice of my weeping.
9The Lord has heard my supplication;
The Lord will receive my prayer.
10Let all my enemies be ashamed and greatly troubled;
Let them turn back and be ashamed suddenly.
