Forever. Among hymns. Over the eighth. A Psalm. Pertaining to Dauid.
- O Lord, do not rebuke me in your anger,
nor discipline me in your wrath.
- Have mercy on me, O Lord, because I am weak;
heal me, O Lord, because my bones were troubled,
- and my soul was troubled greatly.
And you, O Lord — how long?
- Turn, O Lord; rescue my soul;
save me for the sake of your mercy,
- Because in death there is no one remembering you,
and in Hades who will acknowledge you?
- I was weary in my groaning;
every night I will bathe my bed;
with my tears I will drench my covers.
- My eye was troubled from anger;
I grew old among all my enemies.
- Depart from me, all you practicing lawlessness,
because the Lord has heard the voice of my weeping.
- The Lord listened to my petition;
the Lord accepted my prayer.
- May all my enemies be shamed and troubled;
may they be turned back and greatly shamed quickly.
