1 Yahweh, don't rebuke me in your anger, Neither discipline me in your wrath.
2 Have mercy on me, Yahweh, for I am faint. Yahweh, heal me, for my bones are troubled.
3 My soul is also in great anguish. But you, Yahweh -- how long?
4 Return, Yahweh. Deliver my soul, And save me for your lovingkindness' sake.
5 For in death there is no memory of you. In Sheol, who shall give you thanks?
6 I am weary with my groaning; Every night I flood my bed; I drench my couch with my tears.
7 My eye wastes away because of grief; It grows old because of all my adversaries.
8 Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity, For Yahweh has heard the voice of my weeping.
9 Yahweh has heard my supplication. Yahweh will receive my prayer.
10 May all my enemies be ashamed and dismayed. They shall turn back, they shall be disgraced suddenly. Psalm 7 A meditation by David, which he sang to Yahweh, concerning the words of Cush, the Benjamite.
