Reading along with us in the first 30 chapters of Psalm? Here’s today’s reading:

Psalm 6 (ESV)

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?
6 I am weary with my moaning;
every night I flood my bed with tears;

  1. I love David’s reasoning with God, “Demonstrate your mercy by delivering me, because if I’m dead I can’t give You thanks for being merciful.”

  2. It is interesting in verse 1 that David recognizes there may be a need for God’s rebuke but he doesn’t want that to come from God’s wrath. It reminds me of Hebrews 12 where the writer tells us God disciplines those He loves. But it appears David’s greatest burden is from his enemies…and the anguish he bears is deep. What a comfort when we have people come against us that we have God to turn to as well as a Psalm like this that we are not the first ones to go through this and need God’s help in this way.

    And what a weight lifted when we see God move, when there is some evidence that He has heard our cry and I dealing with our enemies in the way they deserve!
