Psalm 6 (the First Penitential Psalm)

O Lord, rebuke me not in Thine indignation,

nor chastise me in Thy wrath.

Have mercy on me, O Lord,

for I am weak; heal me, O Lord,

for my bones are troubled.

And my soul is troubled exceedingly:

but Thou, O Lord, how long?

Turn to me, O Lord,

and deliver my soul:

O save me for Thy mercy's sake.

For there is no one in death,

that is mindful of Thee:

and who shall confess to Thee in hell?

I have laboured in my groanings,

every night I will wash my bed:

I will water my couch with my tears.

My eye is troubled through indignation:

I have grown old amongst all my enemies.

Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity:

for the Lord hath heard the voice of my weeping.

The Lord hath heard my supplication:

the Lord hath received my prayer.

Let all my enemies be ashamed,

and be very much troubled:

let them be turned back,

and be ashamed very speedily.

Glory be the the Father...
