Psalms, Chapter 69

69:1 For the Chief Musician; set to Shoshannim. [A Psalm] of David. Save me, O God; For the waters have come in to my soul.
69:2 I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing: I have come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me.
69:3 I am weary with my crying; my throat is dried: My eyes fail while I wait for my God.
69:4 Those who hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of my head: Those who would cut me off, being my enemies wrongfully, are mighty: That which I did not take away I have to restore.
69:5 O God, you know my foolishness; And my sins are not hid from you.
69:6 Don't let those who wait for you be put to shame through me, O Sovereign Yahweh of hosts: Don't let those who seek you be brought to dishonor through me, O God of Israel.
69:7 Because for your sake I have borne reproach; Shame has covered my face.
69:8 I have become a stranger to my brothers, And an alien to my mother's sons.
69:9 For the zeal of your house has eaten me up; And the reproaches of those who reproach you have fallen on me.
69:10 When I wept, [and chastened] my soul with fasting, That was to my reproach.
69:11 When I made sackcloth my clothing, I became a byword to them.
69:12 Those who sit in the gate talk of me; And [I am] the song of the drunkards.
69:13 But as for me, my prayer is to you, O Yahweh, in an acceptable time: O God, in the abundance of your loving-kindness, Answer me in the truth of your salvation.
69:14 Deliver me out of the mire, and don't let me sink: Let me be delivered from those who hate me, and out of the deep waters.
69:15 Don't let the floodwater overwhelm me, Neither let the deep swallow me up; And don't let the pit shut its mouth on me.
69:16 Answer me, O Yahweh; for your loving-kindness is good: According to the multitude of your tender mercies turn to me.
69:17 And don't hide your face from your slave; For I am in distress; answer me speedily.
69:18 Draw near to my soul, and redeem it: Ransom me because of my enemies.
69:19 You know my reproach, and my shame, and my dishonor: My adversaries are all before you.
69:20 Reproach has 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 before them become a snare; And for the secure ones, [let it become] a trap.
69:23 Let their eyes be darkened, so that they can't see; And make their loins continually to shake.
69:24 Pour out your indignation on them, And let the fierceness of your anger overtake them.
69:25 Let their habitation be desolate; Let none dwell in their tents.
69:26 For they persecute him whom you have struck; And they tell of the sorrow of those whom you have wounded.
69:27 Add iniquity to their iniquity; And don't let them come into your righteousness.
69:28 Let them be blotted out of the Book of Life, And not be written with the righteous.
69:29 But I am poor and sorrowful: Let your 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 And it will please Yahweh better than an ox, [Or] a bull that has horns and hoofs.
69:32 The meek have seen it, and are glad: You+ who seek after God, let your+ heart live.
69:33 For Yahweh hears the needy, And does not despise his prisoners.
69:34 Let heaven and earth praise him, The seas, and everything that moves in them.
69:35 For God will save Zion, and build the cities of Judah; And they will remain there, and have it in possession.
69:36 The seed also of his slaves will inherit it; And those who love his name will stay there.
