1 To the chief Musician on Neginoth upon Sheminith, A Psalm of David. O LORD, rebuke me not in thy 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 agitated. 3 My soul is also greatly disquieted: 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 will give thee thanks?
6 I am weary with my groaning; all the night I make my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears. 7 My eye is consumed because of grief; it groweth old because of all my enemies.
