1 ¶ O LORD, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure. 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 vexed: but thou, O LORD, how long? 4 Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies' sake. 5 For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks? 6 I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears. 7 Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because of all mine enemies. 8 ¶ Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the LORD hath heard the voice of my weeping. 9 The LORD hath heard my supplication; the LORD will receive my prayer. 10 Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let them return and be ashamed suddenly.
1 IN thy great indignation, Lord, Do thou rebuke me not; Nor on me lay thy chastening hand In thy displeasure hot. 2 Lord, pity me, for I am weak; Have mercy upon me: And heal thou me, O Lord, because My bones much vexed be. 3 My soul is vexed sore: but, Lord, How long stay wilt thou make? 4 Return, O Lord, my soul set free, Save for thy mercy's sake. 5 Because of thee in death there shall No more remembrance be: Of those that in the grave do lie, Who shall give thanks to thee? 6 I with my groaning weary am; All night till morn appears, Through grief I make my bed to swim, My couch to flow with tears. 7 By reason of my vexing grief Mine eye consumed is; It waxeth old, because of all That are mine enemies. 8 But now, depart from me all ye That work iniquity: Because the Lord hath heard my voice When I did mourn and cry. 9 Unto my supplication's voice The Lord hath lent his ear; When to the Lord my prayer I make, He graciously will hear. 10 Let all be troubled and asham'd That enemies are to me; Let them turn back, and suddenly Ashamed let them be.
