A Cry for Healing
For the Pure and Shining One
A song for stringed instruments, for the new day[b] by King David
6 Yahweh, don’t condemn me.
Don’t punish me in your fiery anger.[c]
2 Please deal gently with me, Yahweh;
show me mercy, for I’m sick and frail and weak.
Heal me, Yahweh, for I’m falling apart.[d]
3 My soul is so troubled; but you,
Return to Me
4 Yahweh, turn to me and rescue my life
because I know your faithful love will never fail me.
5 In the darkness of death who remembers your name in worship?
How could I bring you praise if I’m buried in a tomb?[f]
6 I’m worn out with my weeping and groaning.
Night after night I soak my pillow with tears,[g]
and flood my bed with weeping.
7 My eyes of faith[h] won’t focus anymore, for sorrow fills my heart.
There are so many enemies who come against me!
He Heard My Cry
8 Turn from me, all you troublemakers![i]
For Yahweh has turned to hear the sound of my weeping.
9 Yes! Yahweh my healer has heard all my pleading
and has taken hold of my prayers[j] and answered them all.
10 Now it’s my enemies who have been shamed.
Terror-stricken, they will turn back again,[k]
knowing the bitterness of sudden disgrace!
