Psalm 6

This psalm can be formative. [There is no doubt I saved all the hardest to read bits to the end! So I have to put out a psalm or three while I work slowly on the remaining pieces of this mammoth puzzle - making many little adjustments here and there also.]



Psalms 6 Fn Min Max Syll
לַמְנַצֵּ֣חַ בִּ֭נְגִינוֹת עַֽל־הַשְּׁמִינִ֗ית מִזְמ֥וֹר לְדָוִֽד 1 For the leader on strings over octaves. A psalm of David. 3e 4B 16
יְֽהוָ֗ה אַל־בְּאַפְּךָ֥ תוֹכִיחֵ֑נִי
וְֽאַל־בַּחֲמָתְךָ֥ תְיַסְּרֵֽנִי

and do not in your heat chasten me.
