Correct me, LORD, but only with justice—not in your anger, lest you reduce me to nothing.
Correct me, O LORD, but with justice; Not with Your anger, or You will bring me to nothing.
So correct me, LORD, but please be gentle. Do not correct me in anger, for I would die.
So correct us, GOD, as you see best. Don't lose your temper. That would be the end of us.
O Lord, put me right, but with wise purpose; not in your wrath, or you will make me small.
Correct me, O LORD, but in just measure; not in your anger, or you will bring me to nothing.
O LORD, correct me, but with justice; Not in Your anger, lest You bring me to nothing.
