Psalm 69:1-12 (New International Version)

View In My Bible

For the director of music. To [the tune of] "Lilies." Of David.

1 Save me, O God, for the waters1 have come up to my neck.2 2 I sink in the miry depths,3 where there is no foothold. I have come into the deep waters; the floods engulf me. 3 I am worn out calling for help;4 my throat is parched. My eyes fail,5 looking for my God. 4 Those who hate me6 without reason7 outnumber the hairs of my head; many are my enemies without cause,8 those who seek to destroy me.9 I am forced to restore what I did not steal. 5 You know my folly,10 O God; my guilt is not hidden from you.11 6 May those who hope in you not be disgraced because of me, O Lord, the LORD Almighty; may those who seek you not be put to shame because of me, O God of Israel. 7 For I endure scorn12 for your sake,13 and shame covers my face.14 8 I am a stranger to my brothers, an alien to my own mother's sons;15 9 for zeal for your house consumes me,16 and the insults of those who insult you fall on me.17 10 When I weep and fast,18 I must endure scorn; 11 when I put on sackcloth,19 people make sport of me. 12 Those who sit at the gate20 mock me, and I am the song of the drunkards.21
