Psalm 69


A Cry of Distress and Imprecation on Adversaries.

For the choir director; according to Shoshannim. A Psalm of David.

Psalm 69:1   Save me, O God, For the waters have threatened my life.
Psalm 69:2   I have sunk in deep mire, and there is no foothold; I have come into deep waters, and a flood overflows me.
Psalm 69:3   I am weary with my crying; my throat is parched; My eyes fail while I wait for my God.
Psalm 69:4   Those who hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of my head; Those who would destroy me are powerful, being wrongfully my enemies; What I did not steal, I then have to restore.
Psalm 69:5   O God, it is You who knows my folly, And my wrongs are not hidden from You.
Psalm 69:6   May those who wait for You not be ashamed through me, O Lord GOD of hosts; May those who seek You not be dishonored through me, O God of Israel,
Psalm 69:7   Because for Your sake I have borne reproach; Dishonor has covered my face.
Psalm 69:8   I have become estranged from my brothers And an alien to my mother's sons.
Psalm 69:9   For zeal for Your house has consumed me, And the reproaches of those who reproach You have fallen on me.
Psalm 69:10   When I wept in my soul with fasting, It became my reproach.
Psalm 69:11   When I made sackcloth my clothing, I became a byword to them.
Psalm 69:12   Those who sit in the gate talk about me, And I am the song of the drunkards.
Psalm 69:13   But as for me, my prayer is to You, O LORD, at an acceptable time; O God, in the greatness of Your lovingkindness, Answer me with Your saving truth.
Psalm 69:14   Deliver me from the mire and do not let me sink; May I be delivered from my foes and from the deep waters.
Psalm 69:15   May the flood of water not overflow me Nor the deep swallow me up, Nor the pit shut its mouth on me.
Psalm 69:16   Answer me, O LORD, for Your lovingkindness is good; According to the greatness of Your compassion, turn to me,
Psalm 69:17   And do not hide Your face from Your servant, For I am in distress; answer me quickly.
Psalm 69:18   Oh draw near to my soul and redeem it; Ransom me because of my enemies!
Psalm 69:19   You know my reproach and my shame and my dishonor; All my adversaries are before You.
Psalm 69:20   Reproach has broken my heart and I am so sick. And I looked for sympathy, but there was none, And for comforters, but I found none.
Psalm 69:21   They also gave me gall for my food And for my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.
Psalm 69:22   May their table before them become a snare; And when they are in peace, may it become a trap.
Psalm 69:23   May their eyes grow dim so that they cannot see, And make their loins shake continually.
Psalm 69:24   Pour out Your indignation on them, And may Your burning anger overtake them.
Psalm 69:25   May their camp be desolate; May none dwell in their tents.
Psalm 69:26   For they have persecuted him whom You Yourself have smitten, And they tell of the pain of those whom You have wounded.
Psalm 69:27   Add iniquity to their iniquity, And may they not come into Your righteousness.
Psalm 69:28   May they be blotted out of the book of life And may they not be recorded with the righteous.
Psalm 69:29   But I am afflicted and in pain; May Your salvation, O God, set me securely on high.
Psalm 69:30   I will praise the name of God with song And magnify Him with thanksgiving.
Psalm 69:31   And it will please the LORD better than an ox Or a young bull with horns and hoofs.
Psalm 69:32   The humble have seen it and are glad; You who seek God, let your heart revive.
Psalm 69:33   For the LORD hears the needy And does not despise His who are prisoners.
Psalm 69:34   Let heaven and earth praise Him, The seas and everything that moves in them.
Psalm 69:35   For God will save Zion and build the cities of Judah, That they may dwell there and possess it.
