YLT 1 To the Overseer. -- `On the Lilies,' by David. Save me, O God, for come have waters unto the soul. NIV 1 Save me, O God, for the waters have come up to my neck. YLT 2 I have sunk in deep mire, And there is no standing, I have come into the depths of the waters, And a flood hath overflown me. NIV 2 I sink in the miry depths, where there is no foothold. I have come into the deep waters; the floods engulf me. YLT 3 I have been wearied with my calling, Burnt hath been my throat, Consumed have been mine eyes, waiting for my God. NIV 3 I am worn out calling for help; my throat is parched. My eyes fail, looking for my God. YLT 4 Those hating me without cause Have been more than the hairs of my head, Mighty have been my destroyers, My lying enemies, That which I took not away -- I bring back. NIV 4 Those who hate me without reason outnumber the hairs of my head; many are my enemies without cause, those who seek to destroy me. I am forced to restore what I did not steal. YLT 5 O God, Thou -- Thou hast known Concerning my overturn, And my desolations from Thee have not been hid. NIV 5 You know my folly, O God; my guilt is not hidden from you. YLT 6 Let not those waiting on Thee be ashamed because of me, O Lord, Jehovah of Hosts, Let not those seeking Thee Blush because of me, O God of Israel. NIV 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. YLT 7 For because of Thee I have borne reproach, Shame hath covered my face. NIV 7 For I endure scorn for your sake, and shame covers my face. YLT 8 A stranger I have been to my brother, And a foreigner to sons of my mother. NIV 8 I am a stranger to my brothers, an alien to my own mother's sons; YLT 9 For zeal for Thy house hath consumed me, And the reproaches of Thy reproachers Have fallen upon me. NIV 9 for zeal for your house consumes me, and the insults of those who insult you fall on me. YLT 10 And I weep in the fasting of my soul, And it is for a reproach to me. NIV 10 When I weep and fast, I must endure scorn; YLT 11 And I make my clothing sackcloth, And I am to them for a simile. NIV 11 when I put on sackcloth, people make sport of me. YLT 12 Those sitting at the gate meditate concerning me, And those drinking strong drink, Play on instruments. NIV 12 Those who sit at the gate mock me, and I am the song of the drunkards. YLT 13 And I -- my prayer [is] to Thee, O Jehovah, A time of good pleasure, O God, In the abundance of Thy kindness, Answer me in the truth of Thy salvation. NIV 13 But I pray to you, O LORD, in the time of your favor; in your great love, O God, answer me with your sure salvation. YLT 14 Deliver me from the mire, and let me not sink, Let me be delivered from those hating me, And from deep places of waters.

YLT 15 Let not a flood of waters overflow me, Nor let the deep swallow me up, Nor let the pit shut her mouth upon me.

YLT 18 Be near unto my soul -- redeem it, Because of mine enemies ransom me. NIV 18 Come near and rescue me; redeem me because of my foes. YLT 19 Thou -- Thou hast known my reproach, And my shame, and my blushing, Before Thee [are] all mine adversaries. NIV 19 You know how I am scorned, disgraced and shamed; all my enemies are before you. YLT 20 Reproach hath broken my heart, and I am sick, And I look for a bemoaner, and there is none, And for comforters, and I have found none. NIV 20 Scorn has broken my heart and has left me helpless; I looked for sympathy, but there was none, for comforters, but I found none. YLT 21 And they give for my food gall, And for my thirst cause me to drink vinegar. NIV 21 They put gall in my food and gave me vinegar for my thirst. YLT 22 Their table before them is for a snare, And for a recompence -- for a trap. NIV 22 May the table set before them become a snare; may it become retribution and a trap. YLT 23 Darkened are their eyes from seeing, And their loins continually shake Thou. NIV 23 May their eyes be darkened so they cannot see, and their backs be bent forever. YLT 24 Pour upon them Thine indignation, And the fierceness of Thine anger doth seize them. NIV 24 Pour out your wrath on them; let your fierce anger overtake them. YLT 25 Their tower is desolated, In their tents there is no dweller. NIV 25 May their place be deserted; let there be no one to dwell in their tents.
