Sunday Morning Prayer (Wk46/2021) – Psalm 6

Prayer for Mercy in Time of Trouble.

To the Chief Musician; on stringed instruments, set [possibly] an octave below. A Psalm of David.

1 O Lord, do not rebuke or punish me in Your anger, nor discipline me in Your wrath.

2 Have mercy on me and be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am weak (faint, frail); heal me, O Lord, for my bones are dismayed and anguished.

3 My soul [as well as my body] is greatly dismayed. But as for You, O Lord—how long [until You act on my behalf]?

4 Return, O Lord, rescue my soul; save me because of Your [unfailing] steadfast love and mercy.

5 For in death there is no mention of You; in Sheol (the nether world, the place of the dead) who will praise You and give You thanks?

6 I am weary with my groaning; every night I soak my bed with tears, I drench my couch with my weeping.

7 My eye grows dim with grief; it grows old because of all my enemies.

8 Depart from me, all you who do evil, for the Lord has heard the voice of my weeping.

9 The Lord has heard my supplication [my plea for grace];The Lord receives my prayer.

10 Let all my enemies be ashamed and greatly horrified; let them turn back, let them suddenly be ashamed [of what they have done].

Psalm 6:1-10 (AMP)
