Psalms Chapter 6



1 (To the chief Musician on Neginoth upon Sheminith, A Psalm of David.) O LORD, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.

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

3 My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O LORD, how long?

4 Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies' sake.

5 For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?

6 I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears.

7 Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because of all mine enemies.

8 Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the LORD hath heard the voice of my weeping.

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

10 Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let them return and be ashamed suddenly.

This verse reminds me of the old hymn, ' Trust and Obey'. God's wisdom and understanding is higher than human understanding. We may not understand why things happen, "but all things work together for good to those who love God". It is for our eternal good, not necessarily for our happiness. I am sure Joseph couldn't make any sense of why his brethren treated him so badly but he trusted God.

Verse 6~David was so greatly distressed that he cried many tears. When we are in distress we should cry out to Jehovah God too.
