Psalms 6

Previous Chapter | Next Chapter

 1 O LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger, nor chasten me in your hot displeasure.

 2 Have mercy upon me, O LORD, for I am weak; O LORD, heal me, for my bones are troubled.

 3 My soul is also greatly troubled; but you, O LORD — how long?

 4 Return, O LORD, deliver my soul; Oh save me for your mercies' sake.

 5 For in death there is no remembrance of you; in the grave who will give you thanks?

 6 I am weary with my groaning; all night I flood my bed with tears, I drench my couch with my weeping.

 7 My eye is consumed because of grief; it grows old because of all my enemies.

 8 Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity,1 for the LORD has heard the voice of my weeping.

 9 The LORD has heard my supplication; the LORD will receive my prayer.

 10 Let all my enemies be ashamed and greatly troubled; let them turn back and be ashamed suddenly.

1 Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity. David was King. He didn't keep evil people around him. He is being chastend and rebuked by the Lord; he cries all night. David is being persecuted by fallen angels, demons, who surround him, who ridicule him, who condemn him, who inflict pain on him. As you read the Psalms, you will see many references to the supernatural suffering that David underwent. He suffered after he fell to sin from perfection; he was chastened. He was taken to the edge of Hell, and then restored to perfection.
