1 O Jehovah, do not rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your wrath.
2 Be merciful to me, Jehovah, for I am faint. O Jehovah, heal me, for my bones are in agony.
3 I am in anguish. How long, O Jehovah, how long?
4 Return, O Jehovah, and deliver me. Save me because of your unfailing love.
5 No one remembers you when he is dead. Who praises you from the grave?
6 I am worn out from groaning. All night long I flood my bed with weeping and drench my couch with tears.
7 My eyes grow weak with sorrow. I am weak because of all my foes.
8 Depart from me, all you who do evil. Jehovah hears my weeping.
9 Jehovah hears my supplication for mercy. Jehovah receives my prayer!
10 All my enemies will be ashamed and dismayed. They will turn back in sudden disgrace.
