Psalm 6

Today we look at Psalm 6 in our Saturdays in the Psalms series. What strikes you? What questions do you have? How does this challenge or comfort you? ~ Pastor Mark


Psalm 6 (The Message) | A David Psalm

1-2 Please, God, no more yelling,

    no more trips to the woodshed.

Treat me nice for a change;

    I’m so starved for affection.

2-3 Can’t you see I’m black-and-blue,

    beat up badly in bones and soul?

God, how long will it take

    for you to let up?

4-5 Break in, God, and break up this fight;

    if you love me at all, get me out of here.

I’m no good to you dead, am I?

    I can’t sing in your choir if I’m buried in some tomb!

6-7 I’m tired of all this—so tired. My bed

    has been floating forty days and nights

On the flood of my tears.

    My mattress is soaked, soggy with tears.

The sockets of my eyes are black holes;

    nearly blind, I squint and grope.

8-9 Get out of here, you Devil’s crew:

    at last God has heard my sobs.

My requests have all been granted,

    my prayers are answered.

10 Cowards, my enemies disappear.

Disgraced, they turn tail and run.
