Psalm Six LXX (Ps. 6, Masoretic)

St. Pachomius Library Translation of the Septuagint

Chapter 6

  1. Unto the end, in hymns for her the eighth. A psalm of David.
  2. O LORD, rebuke me not in thy wrath, neither chasten me in thine anger.
  3. Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed.
  4. My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O LORD, how long?
  5. Turn back, O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercy's sake.
  6. For in death there is none mindful of thee: in Hades who shall confess thee?
  7. I was wearied in my groaning; throughout each night shall I bathe my bed; I shall sprinkle my couch with my tears.
  8. Mine eye was vexed because of wrath; I waxed old among all mine enemies.
  9. Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the LORD [hath] heard the voice of my weeping.
  10. The LORD heard my supplication; the LORD received my prayer.
  11. Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let them be turned back and speedily put to great shame.
