.2 Lord, do not reprove me in your anger;
punish me not in your rage.
.3 Have mercy on me, Lord, I have no strength;
Lord, heal me, my body is racked;
.4 my soul is racked with pain.
But you, O Lord…how long?
.5 Return, Lord, rescue my soul.
Save me in your merciful love;
.6 for in death no one remembers you;
from the grave, who can give you praise?
.7 I am exhausted with my groaning;
every night I drench my pillow with tears;
I bedew my bed with weeping.
.8 My eye wastes away with grief;
I have grown old surrounded by my foes.
.9 Leave me, all you who do evil;
for the Lord has heard my weeping.
.10 The Lord has heard my plea;
The Lord will accept my prayer.
.11 All my foes will retire in confusion,
foiled and suddenly confounded.
