O Lord, in thy wrath rebuke me not:
neither chasten me in thy displeasure.
Have mercy upon me, O Lord, for I am weak:
O Lord, heal me, for my bones are vexed.
My soul is also sore troubled:
but, Lord, how long wilt thou punish me?
O save me, for thy mercy's sake.

German.png German translation

O Herr, in deinem Zorn tadle mich nicht,
und züchtige mich nicht in deinem Grimm.
Habe Erbarmen mit mir, o Herr, denn ich bin schwach:
O Herr, heile mich, denn mein Gebein ist gequält.
Meine Seele schmerzt und ist in Aufruhr:
Doch Herr, wie lange willst du mich strafen?
O rette mich um deiner Gnade willen.
Translation by Peter Rottländer
