Psalm of the Day – October 23, 2021 (Psalm 6)

1   O LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger, 
          or discipline me in your wrath. 
2   Be gracious to me, O LORD, for I am languishing; 
          O LORD, heal me, for my bones are shaking with terror. 
3   My soul also is struck with terror, 
          while you, O LORD — how long?

4   Turn, O LORD, save my life; 
          deliver me for the sake of your steadfast love. 
5   For in death there is no remembrance of you; 
          in Sheol who can give you praise?

6   I am weary with my moaning; 
          every night I flood my bed with tears; 
          I drench my couch with my weeping. 
7   My eyes waste away because of grief; 
          they grow weak because of all my foes.

8 Depart from me, all you workers of evil,
for the LORD has heard the sound of my weeping.
9 The LORD has heard my supplication;
the LORD accepts my prayer.
10 All my enemies shall be ashamed and struck with terror;
they shall turn back, and in a moment be put to shame.
