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
2 Yahweh, do not in your anger correct me,
and do not in your heat chasten me.
3e 4A 10
חָנֵּ֥נִי יְהוָה֮ כִּ֤י אֻמְלַ֫ל אָ֥נִי
רְפָאֵ֥נִי יְהוָ֑ה
כִּ֖י נִבְהֲל֣וּ עֲצָמָֽי
3 Be gracious to me, Yahweh, for I, I am feeble.
Heal me Yahweh,
for vexed are my bones.
3e 4C 10
וְ֭נַפְשִׁי נִבְהֲלָ֣ה מְאֹ֑ד
וְאַתָּ֥ה יְ֝הוָ֗ה עַד־מָתָֽי
4 g And my being is vexed much.
And you, Yahweh, how long?

3e 4B 8
שׁוּבָ֣ה יְ֭הוָה חַלְּצָ֣ה נַפְשִׁ֑י
ה֝וֹשִׁיעֵ֗נִי לְמַ֣עַן חַסְדֶּֽךָ
5 Turn Yahweh, rescue my being.
Save me for the sake of your kindness.
3e 4B 8
כִּ֤י אֵ֣ין בַּמָּ֣וֶת זִכְרֶ֑ךָ
בִּ֝שְׁא֗וֹל מִ֣י יֽוֹדֶה־לָּֽךְ
6 C For there is not in death remembrance of you.
In the grave who will give thanks to you?

3e 4C 8
יָגַ֤עְתִּי ׀ בְּֽאַנְחָתִ֗י אַשְׂחֶ֣ה בְכָל־לַ֭יְלָה מִטָּתִ֑י
בְּ֝דִמְעָתִ֗י עַרְשִׂ֥י אַמְסֶֽה
7 I am weary with my sighing. I make my couch swim every night.
In my tears my bed I dissolve.
3e 4C 16
עָֽשְׁשָׁ֣ה מִכַּ֣עַס עֵינִ֑י
עָֽ֝תְקָ֗ה בְּכָל־צוֹרְרָֽי
8 Swollen from grief my eye,
viscous in all my troubles.

3e 4B 7
ס֣וּרוּ מִ֭מֶּנִּי כָּל־פֹּ֣עֲלֵי אָ֑וֶן
כִּֽי־שָׁמַ֥ע יְ֝הוָ֗ה ק֣וֹל בִּכְיִֽי
9 B Depart from me, all workers of mischief,
for Yahweh has heard the voice of my weeping.
3e 4B 11
שָׁמַ֣ע יְ֭הוָה תְּחִנָּתִ֑י
יְ֝הוָ֗ה תְּֽפִלָּתִ֥י יִקָּֽח
10 Yahweh hears my supplication.
Yahweh will my prayer receive.
3e 4B 8
יֵבֹ֤שׁוּ ׀ וְיִבָּהֲל֣וּ מְ֭אֹד כָּל־אֹיְבָ֑י
יָ֝שֻׁ֗בוּ יֵבֹ֥שׁוּ רָֽגַע
11 Shamed and vexed much all my enemies.
Let them turn and be ashamed in a moment.
3e 4C 13
