A Journey Through the Psalms and Proverbs

Paul Schmidth

Paul Schmidth

Hey, fellow travelers. I am Paul Schmidth. I hope you had a wonderful holiday and made Jesus more famous!

I have been at Watermark for almost 15 years, and I love serving with the Believe Team and Frontlines. I also have the privilege of leading our Glow event. An interesting fact is that tomorrow I will have been a hairstylist for 40 years! I have a new grandbaby due in a week and two others that keep me on my toes. I am so grateful for God's grace towards me every day, reminding me that His Word is true.

Psalm 6

O Lord, Deliver My Life

To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments; according to The Sheminith. [1] A Psalm of David.

6:1 O Lord, rebuke me not in your anger,
nor discipline me in your wrath.
Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am languishing;
heal me, O Lord, for my bones are troubled.
My soul also is greatly troubled.
But you, O Lord—how long?

Turn, O Lord, deliver my life;
save me for the sake of your steadfast love.
For in death there is no remembrance of you;
in Sheol who will give you praise?

I am weary with my moaning;
every night I flood my bed with tears;
I drench my couch with my weeping.
My eye wastes away because of grief;
it grows weak because of all my foes.

Depart from me, all you workers of evil,
for the Lord has heard the sound of my weeping.
The Lord has heard my plea;
the Lord accepts my prayer.
10 All my enemies shall be ashamed and greatly troubled;
they shall turn back and be put to shame in a moment. (ESV)


[1] 6:1 Probably a musical or liturgical term


Psalm 1:2

but his delight is in the law of the Lord,
and on his law he meditates day and night.
