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 troubled. 3 My soul is also greatly troubled; 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 Sheol who shall give thee thanks?
6 I am weary with my groaning; all the night I flood my bed; I water my couch with my tears. 7 Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxes old because of all mine enemies.
