Psalm 69:1-10

1 <> Save me, O God, for the waters have come in unto my soul.
2 I sink into deep mire where there is no standing; I have come into deep waters where the floods overflow me.
3 I am weary of my crying, my throat is dry; mine eyes fail while I wait for my God.
4 They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of mine head; they that would destroy me, being mine enemies wrongfully, are mighty. Then I was made to restore that which I took not away.
5 O God, Thou knowest my foolishness, and my sins are not hid from Thee.
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,
7 because for Thy sake I have borne reproach; shame hath covered my face.
8 I have become a stranger unto my brethren, and an alien unto my mother's children.
9 For the zeal for Thine house hath eaten me up, and the reproaches of them that reproached Thee have fallen upon me.
10 When I wept and chastened my soul with fasting, that was turned to my reproach.
