69:1 Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto my soul.
69:2 I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing: I am come into
deep waters, where the floods overflow me.
69:3 I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried: mine eyes fail while
I wait for my God.
69:4 They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of mine
head: they that would destroy me, being mine enemies wrongfully, are
mighty: then I restored that which I took not away.
69:5 O God, thou knowest my foolishness; and my sins are not hid from
69:6 Let not them that wait on thee, O Lord GOD of hosts, be ashamed
for my sake: let not those that seek thee be confounded for my sake, O
God of Israel.
69:7 Because for thy sake I have borne reproach; shame hath covered my
69:8 I am become a stranger unto my brethren, and an alien unto my
69:9 For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; and the reproaches
of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.
69:10 When I wept, and chastened my soul with fasting, that was to my
69:11 I made sackcloth also my garment; and I became a proverb to
69:12 They that sit in the gate speak against me; and I was the song
of the drunkards.
69:13 But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O LORD, in an acceptable
time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of
69:14 Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink: let me be
delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters.
69:15 Let not the waterflood overflow me, neither let the deep swallow
me up, and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me.
69:16 Hear me, O LORD; for thy lovingkindness is good: turn unto me
according to the multitude of thy tender mercies.
69:17 And hide not thy face from thy servant; for I am in trouble:
hear me speedily.
69:18 Draw nigh unto my soul, and redeem it: deliver me because of
69:19 Thou hast known my reproach, and my shame, and my dishonour:
mine adversaries are all before thee.
69:20 Reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness: and I
looked for some to take pity, but there was none; and for comforters,
but I found none.
69:21 They gave me also gall for my meat; and in my thirst they gave
me vinegar to drink.
69:22 Let their table become a snare before them: and that which
should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap.
69:23 Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not; and make their
loins continually to shake.
69:24 Pour out thine indignation upon them, and let thy wrathful anger
take hold of them.
69:25 Let their habitation be desolate; and let none dwell in their
69:26 For they persecute him whom thou hast smitten; and they talk to
the grief of those whom thou hast wounded.
69:27 Add iniquity unto their iniquity: and let them not come into thy
69:28 Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be
written with the righteous.
69:29 But I am poor and sorrowful: let thy salvation, O God, set me up
69:30 I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him
69:31 This also shall please the LORD better than an ox or bullock
that hath horns and hoofs.
69:32 The humble shall see this, and be glad: and your heart shall
live that seek God.
69:33 For the LORD heareth the poor, and despiseth not his prisoners.
69:34 Let the heaven and earth praise him, the seas, and every thing
that moveth therein.
69:35 For God will save Zion, and will build the cities of Judah: that
they may dwell there, and have it in possession.
69:36 The seed also of his servants shall inherit it: and they that
love his name shall dwell therein.
