Psalm 69

Save me, O God :
 for the waters have come up even to my throat.
I sink in the deep mire where no footing is :
 I have come into deep waters and the flood sweeps over me.
I am weary with crying out, my throat is parched :
 my eyes fail with watching so long for my God.
Those that hate me without cause
   are more in number than the hairs of my head :
 those that would destroy me are many,
   they oppose me wrongfully
for I must restore things that I never took.
O God, you know my foolishness :
 and my sins are not hidden from you.
Let not those who wait for you be shamed because of me,
   O Lord God of hosts :
 let not those who seek you be disgraced on my account,
   O God of Israel.
For your sake have I suffered reproach :
 and shame has covered my face.
I have become a stranger to my brothers :
 an alien to my own mother’s sons.
Zeal for your house has eaten me up :
 and the taunts of those who taunt you have fallen on me.
I afflicted myself with fasting :
 and that was turned to my reproach.
I made sackcloth my clothing :
 and I became a byword to them.
Those who sit in the gate talk of me :
 and the drunkards make songs about me.
But to you, Lord, I make my prayer :
 at an acceptable time.
Answer me, O God, in your abundant goodness :
 and with your sure deliverance.
Bring me out of the mire, so that I may not sink :
 let me be delivered from my enemies, and from the deep waters.
Let not the flood overwhelm me or the depths swallow me up :
 let not the Pit shut its mouth upon me.
Hear me, O Lord, as your loving-kindness is good :
 turn to me, as your compassion is great.
Do not hide your face from your servant :
 for I am in trouble O be swift to answer me!
