A new recording of Psalm 6 by the The Psalms Project Band, featuring the voice of Deryck Box. The song begins: “Lord, do not rebuke me in your anger, or chasten me in your wrath. Be merciful to me, for I am weak…”

Matthew Henry says in his commentary on Psalm 6:

“David was a weeping prophet as well as Jeremiah, and this psalm is one of his lamentations: either it was penned in a time, or at least calculated for a time, of great trouble, both outward and inward. Is any afflicted? Is any sick? Let him sing this psalm. The method of this psalm is very observable, and what we shall often meet with. He begins with doleful complaints, but ends with joyful praises; like Hannah, who went to prayer with a sorrowful spirit, but, when she had prayed, went her way, and her countenance was no more sad.”
