Don't Rebuke Me in Your Anger
1For the Chief Musician; on stringed instruments, set to the Sheminith. A Psalm of David. O LORD, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.
2Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am withered away: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed.
3My soul also is sore vexed: and thou, O LORD, how long?
4Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: save me for thy lovingkindness' sake.
5For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in Sheol who shall give thee thanks?
6I am weary with my groaning; every night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears.
7Mine eye wasteth away because of grief; it waxeth old because of all mine adversaries.
8Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the LORD hath heard the voice of my weeping.
9The LORD hath heard my supplication; the LORD will receive my prayer.
10All mine enemies shall be ashamed and sore vexed: they shall turn back, they shall be ashamed suddenly.
