     [ Illustration: The painting above depicts Jerome contemplating death (the skull) as part of his penitence, as was the case with David, who, in the fifth verse of today's chapter, mentions his anxiety about death and the grave. ]


[ I will again be working through the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation. I will be adding links, resources, images, and the like, upgrading the former work-through which began with the 2013-10-12 posting which can be found, along with the full Genesis to Revelation postings, in the Archive Page. Postings will be at midnight Eastern Time, as I am able. However, no chapters will be skipped, even though a posting may be late. And all postings will be housed in the Archive Page. ]

     Explanation: In Psalm 6, David repents of his sins and gains assurance of God's forgiveness. This Psalm is one of seven penitential Psalms. The occasion is unknown, but it has similarities to the events connected with David's sin with Bathsheba and with the events associated with the rebellion of Absalom.
     David asks the LORD not to rebuke him in his anger or to chasten him in his hot displeasure. He pleads for mercy in his weakness and asks for deliverance for his soul for the sake of the LORD's mercies. Apparently he felt that his life was in danger, as shown by his reminder to the LORD that in death there was no remembrance of the LORD, and in the grave none give him thanks. He was weary with his groaning. He spent his nights in tears that wore out his eyes (1-7).
     Having said these things, David gained assurance that the LORD had heard his weeping, his supplication, and his prayer. He therefore commanded all the workers of iniquity to depart from him. And he pronounced a curse on his enemies, asking that they would suddenly be ashamed and vexed (8-10).

PLEASE NOTE: Use the resources on this and other sites thoughtfully, particularly the commentaries and encyclopedias. I have attempted to list conservative, scholarly resources. However, some providers use liberal or liberal-influenced commentaries such as the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges (in Bible Hub). Such commentaries are undoubtedly included by the provider for the wealth of useful information and comments which they provide. By consulting several commentaries, it should be fairly easy to sort out the wheat from the chaff. If, however, you would like personal assistance, write to me at AD LIB ARTS EMAIL.

from the time of David around 1016 B. C. to the close of the Canon in about 404 B. C.
Psalm 90, according to its superscription, was written by Moses; this may have been around 1406 B. C.

To the chief Musician on Neginoth upon Sheminith [Transposed To Psalm 5:1]. *


rebuke me not in thine anger,
neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.
2 Have mercy upon me, O LORD;
for I am weak:
O LORD, heal me;
for my bones are vexed.
3 My soul is also sore vexed:
but thou, O LORD, how long?
4 Return, O LORD,
deliver my soul:
oh save me for thy mercies' sake.
5 For in death there is no remembrance of thee:
in the grave who shall give thee thanks?
6 I am weary with my groaning;
all the night make I my bed to swim;
I water my couch with my tears.
7 Mine eye is consumed because of grief;
it waxeth old because of all mine enemies.

8 Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity;
for the LORD hath heard the voice of my weeping.
9 The LORD hath heard my supplication;
the LORD will receive my prayer.
10 Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed:
let them return and be ashamed suddenly.
