Psalm 6

To the chief Musician on Neginoth upon Sheminith, A Psalm of David. 
  1. O LORD, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure. 
  2. Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed.
  3. My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O LORD, how long?  
  4. Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies' sake.
  5. For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks? 
  6. I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears. 
  7. Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because of all mine enemies. 
  8. Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the LORD hath heard the voice of my weeping. 
  9. The LORD hath heard my supplication; the LORD will receive my prayer. 
  10. Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let them return and be ashamed suddenly.
As stated last week, I've started focusing on one psalm a week so I go slow enough and read it often enough to actually (hopefully) get something out of it.
