Hour of Mercy: Psalm 6 (New American Bible)

1
For the leader; with stringed instruments, “upon the eighth.” A psalm of David.
2
Do not reprove me in your anger, LORD, nor punish me in your wrath.
3
Have pity on me, LORD, for I am weak; heal me, LORD, for my bones are trembling.
4
In utter terror is my soul– and you, LORD, how long…?
5
Turn, LORD, save my life; in your mercy rescue me.
6
For who among the dead remembers you? Who praises you in Sheol?
7
I am wearied with sighing; all night long tears drench my bed; my couch is soaked with weeping.
8
My eyes are dimmed with sorrow, worn out because of all my foes.
9
Away from me, all who do evil! The LORD has heard my weeping.
10
The LORD has heard my prayer; the LORD takes up my plea.
11
My foes will be terrified and disgraced; all will fall back in sudden shame.
