The Enemy Will Be Put to Shame.
O Lord, w rebuke me not in your anger,
nor x discipline me in your wrath.
Be gracious to me, O Lord,
for I am languishing;
y heal me, O Lord ,
z for my bones are troubled.
My a soul also is greatly troubled.
But you, O Lord— b how long?
Turn, O Lord,
deliver my life;
save me for the sake of your steadfast love.
For in c death there is no remembrance of you;
in Sheol who will give you praise?
I am d weary with my e moaning;
every night I flood my bed with tears;
I drench my couch with my weeping.
My f eye wastes away because of grief;
it grows weak because of all my foes.
g Depart from me, all you h workers of evil,
for the Lord i has heard the sound of my weeping.
The Lord has heard my j plea;
the Lord accepts my prayer.
All my enemies shall be ashamed and greatly troubled;
they shall k turn back and be put to shame in a moment.
