To the Director: With stringed instruments. On an eight-stringed harp.[a] A Davidic Psalm

A Prayer in Times of Trouble

Lord, in your anger, do not rebuke me;
    in your wrath, do not discipline me.
Be gracious to me, Lord,
    because I am fading away.
Heal me,
    because my body[b] is distressed.
And my soul[c] is deeply distressed.
    But you, Lord, how long do I wait?[d]
