7  Let not those who hope in you
      be put to shame through me, Lord God of hosts; 
   let not those who seek you be disgraced because of me,
      O God of Israel.
8  For your sake have I suffered reproach; 
   shame has covered my face.
9  I have become a stranger to my kindred, 
   an alien to my mother’s children.
10  Zeal for your house has eaten me up; 
   the scorn of those who scorn you has fallen upon me.
11  I humbled myself with fasting, 
   but that was turned to my reproach.
12  I put on sackcloth also 
   and became a byword among them.
13  Those who sit at the gate murmur against me, 
   and the drunkards make songs about me.
14  But as for me, I make my prayer to you, O Lord; 
   at an acceptable time, O God.
15  Answer me, O God, in the abundance of your mercy 
   and with your sure salvation.
16  Draw me out of the mire, that I sink not; 
   let me be rescued from those who hate me
      and out of the deep waters.
17  Let not the water flood drown me,
      neither the deep swallow me up; 
   let not the Pit shut its mouth upon me.
18  Answer me, Lord, for your loving-kindness is good; 
   turn to me in the multitude of your mercies.
