Psalm 69

1Save me, O God, for the waters have come up to my neck.

2I sink in deep mire, where there is no foothold; I have come into deep waters, and the flood sweeps over me.

3I am weary with my crying; my throat is parched. My eyes grow dim with waiting for my God.

4More in number than the hairs of my head are those who hate me without cause; many are those who would destroy me, my enemies who accuse me falsely. What I did not steal must I now restore?

5O God, you know my folly; the wrongs I have done are not hidden from you.

6Do not let those who hope in you be put to shame because of me, O Lord God of hosts; do not let those who seek you be dishonored because of me, O God of Israel.

7It is for your sake that I have borne reproach, that shame has covered my face.

8I have become a stranger to my kindred, an alien to my mother’s children.

9It is zeal for your house that has consumed me; the insults of those who insult you have fallen on me.

10When I humbled my soul with fasting, they insulted me for doing so.

11When I made sackcloth my clothing, I became a byword to them.

12I am the subject of gossip for those who sit in the gate, and the drunkards make songs about me.

13But as for me, my prayer is to you, O Lord. At an acceptable time, O God, in the abundance of your steadfast love, answer me. With your faithful help

14rescue me from sinking in the mire; let me be delivered from my enemies and from the deep waters.

15Do not let the flood sweep over me, or the deep swallow me up, or the Pit close its mouth over me.

16Answer me, O Lord, for your steadfast love is good; according to your abundant mercy, turn to me.

17Do not hide your face from your servant, for I am in distress—make haste to answer me.

18Draw near to me, redeem me, set me free because of my enemies.

19You know the insults I receive, and my shame and dishonor; my foes are all known to you.

20Insults have broken my heart, so that I am in despair. I looked for pity, but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none.

21They gave me poison for food, and for my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.

22Let their table be a trap for them, a snare for their allies.

23Let their eyes be darkened so that they cannot see, and make their loins tremble continually.

24Pour out your indignation upon them, and let your burning anger overtake them.

25May their camp be a desolation; let no one live in their tents.

26For they persecute those whom you have struck down, and those whom you have wounded, they attack still more.

27Add guilt to their guilt; may they have no acquittal from you.

28Let them be blotted out of the book of the living; let them not be enrolled among the righteous.

29But I am lowly and in pain; let your salvation, O God, protect me.

30I will praise the name of God with a song; I will magnify him with thanksgiving.

31This will please the Lord more than an ox or a bull with horns and hoofs.

32Let the oppressed see it and be glad; you who seek God, let your hearts revive.

33For the Lord hears the needy, and does not despise his own that are in bonds.

34Let heaven and earth praise him, the seas and everything that moves in them.

35For God will save Zion and rebuild the cities of Judah; and his servants shall live there and possess it;

36the children of his servants shall inherit it, and those who love his name shall live in it.

Psalm 70

1Be pleased, O God, to deliver me. O Lord, make haste to help me!

2Let those be put to shame and confusion who seek my life. Let those be turned back and brought to dishonor who desire to hurt me.

3Let those who say, “Aha, Aha!” turn back because of their shame.

4Let all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you. Let those who love your salvation say evermore, “God is great!”

5But I am poor and needy; hasten to me, O God! You are my help and my deliverer; O Lord, do not delay!

Psalm 71

1In you, O Lord, I take refuge; let me never be put to shame.

2In your righteousness deliver me and rescue me; incline your ear to me and save me.

3Be to me a rock of refuge, a strong fortress, to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress.

4Rescue me, O my God, from the hand of the wicked, from the grasp of the unjust and cruel.

5For you, O Lord, are my hope, my trust, O Lord, from my youth.

6Upon you I have leaned from my birth; it was you who took me from my mother’s womb. My praise is continually of you.

7I have been like a portent to many, but you are my strong refuge.

8My mouth is filled with your praise, and with your glory all day long.

9Do not cast me off in the time of old age; do not forsake me when my strength is spent.

10For my enemies speak concerning me, and those who watch for my life consult together.

11They say, “Pursue and seize that person whom God has forsaken, for there is no one to deliver.”

12O God, do not be far from me; O my God, make haste to help me!

13Let my accusers be put to shame and consumed; let those who seek to hurt me be covered with scorn and disgrace.

14But I will hope continually, and will praise you yet more and more.

15My mouth will tell of your righteous acts, of your deeds of salvation all day long, though their number is past my knowledge.

16I will come praising the mighty deeds of the Lord God, I will praise your righteousness, yours alone.

17O God, from my youth you have taught me, and I still proclaim your wondrous deeds.

18So even to old age and gray hairs, O God, do not forsake me, until I proclaim your might to all the generations to come. Your power

19and your righteousness, O God, reach the high heavens. You who have done great things, O God, who is like you?

20You who have made me see many troubles and calamities will revive me again; from the depths of the earth you will bring me up again.

21You will increase my honor, and comfort me once again.

22I will also praise you with the harp for your faithfulness, O my God; I will sing praises to you with the lyre, O Holy One of Israel.

23My lips will shout for joy when I sing praises to you; my soul also, which you have rescued.

24All day long my tongue will talk of your righteous help, for those who tried to do me harm have been put to shame, and disgraced.

Psalm 72

1Give the king your justice, O God, and your righteousness to a king’s son.

2May he judge your people with righteousness, and your poor with justice.

3May the mountains yield prosperity for the people, and the hills, in righteousness.

4May he defend the cause of the poor of the people, give deliverance to the needy, and crush the oppressor.

5May he live while the sun endures, and as long as the moon, throughout all generations.

6May he be like rain that falls on the mown grass, like showers that water the earth.

7In his days may righteousness flourish and peace abound, until the moon is no more.

8May he have dominion from sea to sea, and from the River to the ends of the earth.

9May his foes bow down before him, and his enemies lick the dust.

10May the kings of Tarshish and of the isles render him tribute, may the kings of Sheba and Seba bring gifts.

11May all kings fall down before him, all nations give him service.

12For he delivers the needy when they call, the poor and those who have no helper.

13He has pity on the weak and the needy, and saves the lives of the needy.

14From oppression and violence he redeems their life; and precious is their blood in his sight.

15Long may he live! May gold of Sheba be given to him. May prayer be made for him continually, and blessings invoked for him all day long.

16May there be abundance of grain in the land; may it wave on the tops of the mountains; may its fruit be like Lebanon; and may people blossom in the cities like the grass of the field.

17May his name endure forever, his fame continue as long as the sun. May all nations be blessed in him; may they pronounce him happy.

18Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel, who alone does wondrous things.

19Blessed be his glorious name forever; may his glory fill the whole earth. Amen and Amen.

20The prayers of David son of Jesse are ended.
