O Lord, Deliver My Life
To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments; according to The Sheminith. A Psalm of David.
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.

O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me.
As for me, I said, "O Lord, be gracious to me; heal me, for I have sinned against you!
Who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases.
For my life is spent with sorrow, and my years with sighing; my strength fails because of my iniquity, and my bones waste away.
Now is my soul troubled. And what shall I say? 'Father, save me from this hour'? But for this purpose I have come to this hour.
Return, O Lord! How long? Have pity on your servants!
What profit is there in my death, if I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it tell of your faithfulness?
Psalms 88:10 - 12
Do you work wonders for the dead? Do the departed rise up to praise you? Selah
The dead do not praise the Lord, nor do any who go down into silence.
For Sheol does not thank you; death does not praise you; those who go down to the pit do not hope for your faithfulness.
I am weary with my crying out; my throat is parched. My eyes grow dim with waiting for my God.

Depart from me, you evildoers, that I may keep the commandments of my God.
Oh that you would slay the wicked, O God! O men of blood, depart from me!
And then will I declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.
Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.
But he will say, 'I tell you, I do not know where you come from. Depart from me, all you workers of evil!
They pour out their arrogant words; all the evildoers boast.
I cried aloud to the Lord, and he answered me from his holy hill. Selah
Give ear to my prayer, O God, and hide not yourself from my plea for mercy!
1 Kings 8:38
Whatever prayer, whatever plea is made by any man or by all your people Israel, each knowing the affliction of his own heart and stretching out his hands toward this house.
Let those be put to shame and disappointed altogether who seek to snatch away my life; let those be turned back and brought to dishonor who delight in my hurt!
Then my enemies will turn back in the day when I call. This I know, that God is for me.
