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!
