Psalm 6:6 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

For in death there is no remembrance of you.
    Who praises you in Sheol?[a]

Footnotes:

  1. 6:6 A motive for God to preserve the psalmist from death: in the shadowy world of the dead no one offers you praise. Sheol is the biblical term for the underworld where the insubstantial souls of dead human beings dwelt. It was similar to the Hades of Greek and Latin literature. In the second century B.C., biblical books begin to speak positively of life with God after death (Dn 12:1–3; Wis 3).

Psalm 88:4-7 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

[a]For my soul is filled with troubles;
    my life draws near to Sheol.
I am reckoned with those who go down to the pit;
    I am like a warrior without strength.
My couch is among the dead,
    like the slain who lie in the grave.
You remember them no more;
    they are cut off from your influence.
You plunge me into the bottom of the pit,
    into the darkness of the abyss.

Footnotes:

  1. 88:4–8 In imagination the psalmist already experiences the alienation of Sheol.
