1 O Yahweh! do not, in thine anger, correct me, nor, in thy wrath, chastise me. 2 Show me favour, O Yahweh, for languishing am I: Heal me, O Yahweh, - for dismayed are my bones: 3 Yea, my soul, is dismayed greatly, Thou, then, O Yahweh - how long?
4 Return, O Yahweh, deliver my soul, Save me, for the sake of thy lovingkindness; 5 For, in death, is no remembrance of thee, - In hades, who shall give thanks unto thee?
6 I am weary with my sighing, I flood, through the whole night, my couch, - With my tears, I cause, my bed, to dissolve: 7 My face, is all sunken with sorrow, - it hath aged, because of all mine adversaries.
