Book of Psalms
Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto my
69:2 I sink in deep mire, where there is no
standing: I am come into deep waters, where the
floods overflow me.
69:3 I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried:
mine eyes fail while I wait for my God.
69:4 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
restored that which I took not away.
69:5 O God, thou knowest my foolishness; and my sins
are not hid from thee.
69:6 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
69:7 Because for thy sake I have borne reproach;
shame hath covered my face.
69:8 I am become a stranger unto my brethren, and an
alien unto my mother's children.
69:9 For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up;
and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are
fallen upon me.
69:10 When I wept, and chastened my soul with
fasting, that was to my reproach.
69:11 I made sackcloth also my garment; and I became
a proverb to them.
69:12 They that sit in the gate speak against me;
and I was the song of the drunkards.
69:13 But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O LORD,
in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of
thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation.
69:14 Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not
sink: let me be delivered from them that hate me,
and out of the deep waters.
69:15 Let not the waterflood overflow me, neither
let the deep swallow me up, and let not the pit shut
her mouth upon me.
69:16 Hear me, O LORD; for thy lovingkindness is
good: turn unto me according to the multitude of thy
69:17 And hide not thy face from thy servant; for I
am in trouble: hear me speedily.
69:18 Draw nigh unto my soul, and redeem it: deliver
me because of mine enemies.
69:19 Thou hast known my reproach, and my shame, and
my dishonour: mine adversaries are all before thee.
69:20 Reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full
of heaviness: and I looked for some to take pity,
but there was none; and for comforters, but I found
69:21 They gave me also gall for my meat; and in my
thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.
69:22 Let their table become a snare before them:
and that which should have been for their welfare,
let it become a trap.
69:23 Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not;
and make their loins continually to shake.
69:24 Pour out thine indignation upon them, and let
thy wrathful anger take hold of them.
69:25 Let their habitation be desolate; and let none
dwell in their tents.
69:26 For they persecute him whom thou hast smitten;
and they talk to the grief of those whom thou hast
69:27 Add iniquity unto their iniquity: and let them
not come into thy righteousness.
69:28 Let them be blotted out of the book of the
living, and not be written with the righteous.
69:29 But I am poor and sorrowful: let thy
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 the LORD better than an
ox or bullock that hath horns and hoofs.
69:32 The humble shall see this, and be glad: and
your heart shall live that seek God.
69:33 For the LORD heareth the poor, and despiseth
not his prisoners.
69:34 Let the heaven and earth praise him, the seas,
and every thing that moveth therein.
69:35 For God will save Zion, and will build the
cities of Judah: that they may dwell there, and have
it in possession.
69:36 The seed also of his servants shall inherit
it: and they that love his name shall dwell therein.
