Full Text:



Psalm 6 is the first of seven psalms of penance, The aim of this article is to indicate how the author of Psalm 6 moved from crippling despair to a liberating religious assurance, by shifting his focus from the suffering he experienced in his own life, to God's loving deeds toward him. The method used to achieve this goal comprises the following steps: translation; syntactic, and stichometric analyses; segmentation; and stilistic analysis.
