Psalm 6

For the music leader. On stringed instruments. According to the eighth.[a] A psalm of David.

Please, Lord,
    don’t punish me when you are angry;
    don’t discipline me when you are furious.
Have mercy on me, Lord,
    because I’m frail.
Heal me, Lord,
    because my bones are shaking in terror!
My whole body[b] is completely terrified!
        But you, Lord! How long will this last?
