1 [To the Chief Musician on Neginoth upon Sheminith. A Psalm of David.] O LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger, neither chasten me in your 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 you, O LORD, how long?
4 Return, O LORD, deliver my soul. Oh save me for your mercy's sake.
5 For in death there is no remembrance of you. In the grave, who will give you 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 grows old because of all my enemies.
8 Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity, for the LORD has heard the voice of my weeping.
9 The LORD has heard my supplication. The LORD will receive my prayer.
10 Let all my enemies be ashamed and greatly disquieted. Let them return and be suddenly ashamed.
[v.8] - Quoted in Matthew 7:23; Luke 13:27.
