1 O Lord, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither
chastise me in thy wrath.
2 Have mercy upon me, O Lord, for I am weak:
O Lord heal me, for my bones are vexed.
3 My soul is also sore troubled: but Lord, how
long wilt thou delay?
4 Return, O Lord: deliver my soul: save me for
thy mercy’s sake.
5 For in death there is no remembrance of thee:
in the grave who shall praise thee?
6 I fainted in my mourning: I cause my bed every
night to swim, and water my couch with my tears.
7 Mine eye is dimmed for despite, and sunk in
because of all mine enemies.
8 Away from me all ye workers of iniquity: for
the Lord hath heard the voice of my weeping.
9 The Lord hath heard my petition: the Lord
will receive my prayer.
10 All mine enemies shall be confounded and sore
vexed: they shall be turned back, and put to shame
