A Psalm of David





Psalm 6

Domine, ne in furore

2 Lord, do not reprove me in your anger;
punish me not in your rage.

3 Have mercy on me, Lord, I have no strength;
Lord, heal me, my body is racked;

4 my soul is racked with pain.

But you, O long?

5 Return, Lord, rescue my soul.
Save me in your merciful love;

6 for in death no one remembers you;
from the grave, who can give you praise?

7 I am exhausted with my groaning;
every night I drench my pillow with tears;
I bedew my bed with weeping.

8 My eye wastes away with grief;
I have grown old surrounded by my foes.

9 Leave me, all you who do evil;
for the Lord has heard my weeping.

10 The Lord has heard my plea;
The Lord will accept my prayer.

11 All my foes will retire in confusion,
foiled and suddenly confounded.

Athanasian Grail Psalter 1
