[For the choir director: with stringed instruments, according to Sheminith. A Davidic psalm.] LORD, do not rebuke me in Your anger; do not discipline me in Your wrath.
Be gracious to me, LORD, for I am weak; heal me, LORD, for my bones are shaking;
my whole being is shaken with terror. And You, Lord-- how long?
Turn, LORD! Rescue me; save me because of Your faithful love.
For there is no remembrance of You in death; who can thank You in Sheol?
I am weary from my groaning; with my tears I dampen my pillow and drench my bed every night.
