Psalms 69

1 (68-1) <Unto the end, for them that shall be changed; for David.> (68-2) Save me, O God: for the waters are come in even unto my soul.
2 (68-3) I stick fast in the mire of the deep and there is no sure standing. I am come into the depth of the sea, and a tempest hath overwhelmed me.
3 (68-4) I have laboured with crying; my jaws are become hoarse, my eyes have failed, whilst I hope in my God.
4 (68-5) They are multiplied above the hairs of my head, who hate me without cause. My enemies are grown strong who have wrongfully persecuted me: then did I pay that which I took not away.
5 (68-6) O God, thou knowest my foolishness; and my offences are not hidden from thee:
6 (68-7) Let not them be ashamed for me, who look for thee, O Lord, the Lord of hosts. Let them not be confounded on my account, who seek thee, O God of Israel.
7 (68-8) Because for thy sake I have borne reproach; shame hath covered my face.
8 (68-9) I am become a stranger to my brethren, and an alien to the sons of my mother.
9 (68-10) For the zeal of thy house hath eaten me up: and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.
10 (68-11) And I covered my soul in fasting: and it was made a reproach to me.
11 (68-12) And I made haircloth my garment: and I became a byword to them.
12 (68-13) They that sat in the gate spoke against me: and they that drank wine made me their song.
13 (68-14) But as for me, my prayer is to thee, O Lord; for the time of thy good pleasure, O God. In the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation.
14 (68-15) Draw me out of the mire, that I may not stick fast: deliver me from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters.
15 (68-16) Let not the tempest of water drown me, nor the deep water swallow me up: and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me.
16 (68-17) Hear me, O Lord, for thy mercy is kind; look upon me according to the multitude of thy tender mercies.
17 (68-18) And turn not away thy face from thy servant: for I am in trouble, hear me speedily.
18 (68-19) Attend to my soul, and deliver it: save me because of my enemies.
19 (68-20) Thou knowest my reproach, and my confusion, and my shame.
20 (68-21) In thy sight are all they that afflict me; my heart hath expected reproach and misery. And I looked for one that would grieve together with me, but there was none: and for one that would comfort me, and I found none.
21 (68-22) And they gave me gall for my food, and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.
22 (68-23) Let their table become as a snare before them, and a recompense, and a stumblingblock.
23 (68-24) Let their eyes be darkened that they see not; and their back bend thou down always.
24 (68-25) Pour out thy indignation upon them: and let thy wrathful anger take hold of them.
25 (68-26) Let their habitation be made desolate: and let there be none to dwell in their tabernacles.
26 (68-27) Because they have persecuted him whom thou hast smitten; and they have added to the grief of my wounds.
27 (68-28) Add thou iniquity upon their iniquity: and let them not come into thy justice.
28 (68-29) Let them be blotted out of the book of the living; and with the just let them not be written.
29 (68-30) But I am poor and sorrowful: thy salvation, O God, hath set me up.
30 (68-31) I will praise the name of God with a canticle: and I will magnify him with praise.
31 (68-32) And it shall please God better than a young calf, that bringeth forth horns and hoofs.
32 (68-33) Let the poor see and rejoice: seek ye God, and your soul shall live.
33 (68-34) For the Lord hath heard the poor: and hath not despised his prisoners.
34 (68-35) Let the heavens and the earth praise him; the sea, and every thing that creepeth therein.
35 (68-36) For God will save Sion, and the cities of Juda shall be built up. And they shall dwell there, and acquire it by inheritance.
36 (68-37) And the seed of his servants shall possess it; and they that love his name shall dwell therein.
