The LORD hears us when we weep over our sins, He assures us of His forgiveness in Christ, and He sends us relief.

ESV Text: Psalm 6:1-10

Psalm 6

O Lord, Deliver My Life

To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments; according to The Sheminith.1 A Psalm of David.


6:1   O LORD, rebuke me not in your anger,
    nor discipline me in your wrath.
  Be gracious to me, O LORD, for I am languishing;
    heal me, O LORD, for my bones are troubled.
  My soul also is greatly troubled.
    But you, O LORD—how long?


  Turn, O LORD, deliver my life;
    save me for the sake of your steadfast love.
  For in death there is no remembrance of you;
    in Sheol who will give you praise?


  I am weary with my moaning;
    every night I flood my bed with tears;
    I drench my couch with my weeping.
  My eye wastes away because of grief;
    it grows weak because of all my foes.


  Depart from me, all you workers of evil,
    for the LORD has heard the sound of my weeping.
  The LORD has heard my plea;
    the LORD accepts my prayer.
10   All my enemies shall be ashamed and greatly troubled;
    they shall turn back and be put to shame in a moment.

KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 6

     1 To the chief Musician on Neginoth upon Sheminith, A Psalm of David. O LORD, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure. 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; 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.(KJV)

1. O faithful God, thanks be to Thee 
Who dost forgive iniquity. 
Thou grantest help in sin’s distress, 
And soul and body dost Thou bless. 

2. Thy servant now declares to me: 
“Thy sins are all forgiven thee. 
Depart in peace, but sin no more 
And e’er My pardoning grace adore.” 

3. O Lord, we bless Thy gracious heart, 
For Thou Thyself dost heal our smart 
Through Christ, our Savior’s precious blood, 
Which for the sake of sinners flowed. 

4. Give us Thy Spirit, peace afford 
Now and forever, gracious Lord. 
Preserve to us till life is spent 
Thy holy Word and Sacrament.
