Psalm 6 – “Be gracious to me, O LORD, for I am languishing”

My teaching notes for Wednesday, June 2nd. I am currently teaching through the book of Psalms.  Remember, these are my personal study notes and not a manuscript of the teaching.

Resources utilized for preparation and study:

Psalm 6


Crying out to God – vv. 1-5

To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments; according to The Sheminith. A Psalm of David.

[1] O LORD, rebuke me not in your anger, nor discipline me in your wrath.  [2] Be gracious to me, O LORD, for I am languishing; heal me, O LORD, for my bones are troubled. [3] My soul also is greatly troubled. But you, O LORD—how long?

[4] Turn, O LORD, deliver my life; save me for the sake of your steadfast love. [5] For in death there is no remembrance of you; in Sheol who will give you praise?

Weary and weeping and wasting away – vv. 6-7

A Renewed Declaration – vv. 8-10

[8] Depart from me, all you workers of evil, for the LORD has heard the sound of my weeping. [9] The LORD has heard my plea; the LORD accepts my prayer. [10] All my enemies shall be ashamed and greatly troubled; they shall turn back and be put to shame in a moment. (ESV)
