Psalm 6

(from Day 1 Evening Prayer)

Domine, ne in furore

  1. O LORD, rebuke me not in thine indignation: neither chasten me in thy displeasure.
  2. Have mercy upon me, O Lord, for I am weak: O Lord, heal me, for my bones are vexed.
  3. My soul also is sore troubled: but, Lord, how long wilt thou punish me?
  4. Turn thee, O Lord, and deliver my soul: O save me for thy mercy's sake.
  5. For in death no man remembereth thee: and who will give thee thanks in the pit?
  6. I am weary of my groaning; every night wash I my bed: and water my couch with my tears.
  7. My beauty is gone for very trouble: and worn away because of all mine enemies.
  8. Away from me, all ye that work vanity: for the Lord hath heard the voice of my weeping.
  9. The Lord hath heard my petition: the Lord will receive my prayer.
  10. All mine enemies shall be confounded, and sore vexed: they shall be turned back, and put to shame suddenly.
