Psalms chapter 69
69:1 | To the Chief Musician. Concerning the Lilies. A Psalm of David. Save me, O God! for the waters have come in on 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 from my crying; my throat is dried; my eyes fail while I wait for my God.
69:4 | They who hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of my head; they who would destroy me are mighty, my lying enemies. Then I restored what I did not take away.
69:5 | O God, You know my foolishness, and my guiltiness is not hidden from You.
69:6 | Do not let those who wait on You, O Jehovah, the God of Hosts, be ashamed for my sake; let not the ones who seek You be ashamed for my sake, O God of Israel,
69:7 | because I have borne reproach for Your sake, shame has covered my face.
69:9 | For the zeal of Your house has eaten Me up; and the reproaches of those who reproached You have fallen on Me.
69:10 | When I humbled my soul with fasting, it turned to my reproach.
69:11 | I also made sackcloth my clothing, and I became a proverb to them.
69:12 | They who sit in the gate speak against me; and I was the song of the drunkards.
69:13 | But as for me, my prayer is to You, O Jehovah, in a pleasing time; O God, in the multitude of Your mercy hear me, in the truth of Your salvation.
69:14 | Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink; let me be delivered from those who hate me, and out of the deep waters.
69:15 | Do not let the flood of waters overflow me, nor let the deep swallow me up, and let not the pit shut its mouth on me.
69:16 | Hear me, O Jehovah, for Your loving-kindness is good; turn to me according to the multitude of Your tender mercies.
69:17 | And hide not Your face from Your servant; for I am in trouble; hear me quickly.
69:18 | Draw near my soul, and redeem it; deliver me because of my enemies.
69:19 | You have known my reproach, and my shame, and my dishonor; my enemies are all before You.
69:20 | Reproach has broken my heart, and I am full of heaviness; and I looked for some to mourn with me, but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none.
69:21 | They also gave Me gall for my food; and in My thirst they gave Me vinegar to drink.
69:22 | Let their table become a snare before them; and to those at ease a trap.
69:23 | Let their eyes be darkened, so that they do not see; and make their loins shake without ceasing.
69:24 | Pour out Your wrath on them, and let the glow of Your anger take hold of them.
69:25 | Let their dwelling be wasted; let none dwell in their tents.
69:26 | For they persecute him whom You have stricken, and they talk to the grief of those You pierced.
69:27 | Add iniquity to their iniquity, and let them not 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 | This also shall please Jehovah better than an ox, or a bull that has horns and hoofs.
69:32 | The humble shall see and be glad; and your heart shall live, you who seek God.
69:33 | For Jehovah hears the needy, and does not despise His prisoners.
69:34 | Let the heavens and earth praise Him, the seas, and everything that moves in them.
69:35 | For God will save Zion, and will build the cities of Judah; so that they may dwell there, and possess it.
69:36 | And the seed of His servants shall inherit it, and they who love His name shall dwell in it.
