A Prayer for Mercy in Time of Trouble
To the chief Musician on Neg'inoth upon Shem'inith, A Psalm of David.

1  O LORD, rebuke me not in thine anger,
        
neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure. Ps. 38.1
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; Mt. 7.23 · Lk. 13.27
        
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.
