Psalms 69

69:1 To the chief Musician upon Shoshannim, [A Psalm] of David.
 Save me, O God; for the waters are come in to [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: my eyes fail
 while I wait for my God.
69:4 They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs
 of my head: they that would destroy me, [being] my enemies
 wrongfully, are mighty: then I restored [that] which I took not
69:5 O God, thou knowest my foolishness; and my sins are not hid
 from thee.
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 face.
69:8 I am become a stranger to my brethren, and an alien to my
 mother's children.
69:9 For the zeal of thy house hath eaten me up; and the
 reproaches of them that reproached thee have fallen upon me.
69:10 When I wept, [and chastened] my soul with fasting, that
 was to my reproach.
69:11 I made sackcloth also my garment; and I became a proverb
 to them.
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] to thee, O LORD, [in] an
 acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me,
 in the truth of thy salvation.
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 water-flood 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 loving-kindness [is] good: turn
 to 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 to my soul, [and] redeem it: deliver me because
 of my enemies.
69:19 Thou hast known my reproach, and my shame, and my
 dishonor: my 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 food; 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
69:23 Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not; and make
 their loins continually to shake.
69:24 Pour out thy 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 tents.
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 to their iniquity: and let them not come into
 thy righteousness.
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 on high.
69:30 I will praise the name of God with a song, and will
 magnify him with thanksgiving.
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
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.
