P  S  A  L .   V  I   (6)

To him that excelleth on Neginoth upon the eight tune. A Psalme of David.

1   O Lord, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chastise me in thy wrath.
2   Have mercy upon mee, O Lorde, for I am weake: O Lord heale mee, for my bones are vexed.
3   My soule is also sore troubled: but Lord, how long wilt thou delay?
4   Returne, O Lord: deliver my soule: save me for thy mercies sake.
5   For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave, who shall praise thee?
6   I fainted in my mourning: I cause my bed every night to swimme, and water my couch with my teares.
7   Mine eye is dimmed for despite, and sunke in because of all mine enemies.
8  Away from me all ye workers of iniquitie: for the Lord hath heard the voyce of my weeping.
9   The Lord hath heard my petition: the Lord will receive my prayer.
10   All mine enemies shall be confounded and sore vexed: they shall bee turned backe, and put to shame suddenly.
