The LORD Delivers the Aching Soul
To the director; for the changings; a psalm to David.1 Deliver me, O God! for [2entered 1the waters] into my soul. 2 I was stuck in [2slime 1deep], and there is no support. I came to the depths of the sea, and the gale sank me. 3 I tired crying out; [2is sore 1my throat]. [2failed 1My eyes] from my hope upon my God. 4 [4multiplied 5over 6the 7hairs 8of my head 1The ones 2detesting 3me]. Freely [2were strengthened 1my enemies], the ones driving me out unjustly; [3what 4I did not 5seize by force 1then 2I paid for]. 5 O God, you know my folly, and my trespasses, [3from 4you 1they are not 2concealed]. 6 [5not 1May 6be ashamed 7over 8me 2the ones 3waiting upon 4you], O lord, O lord of the forces. [5not 1May 6feel shame 7over 8me 2the ones 3seeking 4you], O God of Israel. 7 For because of you I endured scorning; [2covered 1shame] my face. 8 [2one being separated from 1I was] my brethren, and a stranger to the sons of my mother. 9 For the zeal of your house devoured me, and the scornings of the ones berating you fell upon me. 10 And I covered [2in 3fasting 1my soul], and it became for scornings to me. 11 And I put on [2for my garment 1sackcloth], and I became to them as a parable. 12 [6against 7me 5meditated 1The ones 2sitting down 3at 4the gates]; and against me they strummed, even the ones drinking wine. 13 But I will cry in my prayer to you, O lord, at a time of benevolence. O God, in the multitude of your mercies heed me in the truth of your deliverance! 14 Deliver me from mud! that I should not be stuck. May I be rescued from the ones detesting me, and from the depths of the waters. 15 [2not 6me 1Let 5sink 3the gale 4of water], nor let [2swallow 3me 1the deep], nor let [2constrain 4over 5me 1the well 3its mouth]! 16 Listen to me, O lord, for [2is gracious 1your mercy]! According to the multitude of your compassions look upon me! 17 You should not turn your face from your servant, for I am afflicted. Quickly heed me! 18 Take heed to my soul, and ransom it! [3because of 4my enemies 1Rescue 2me]! 19 For you know my scorning, and my shame, and my remorse. Before you are all the ones afflicting me. 20 [3scorning 2expected 1My soul] and misery; and I remained behind for one grieving, and he did not exist; and for ones comforting, but I did not find. 21 And they gave [2for 3my food 1bile]; and for my thirst they gave [3to drink 1me 2vinegar]. 22 Let [4become 1their table 2before 3them] as a snare, and for a recompense, and for an obstacle! 23 Let [2be darkened 1their eyes] to not see, and their back always bent downwards! 24 Pour out upon them your anger! and [2the 3rage 4of your anger 1may] overtake them. 25 Let [2become 1their property] having been made desolate! and [4in 5their tents 1let there not 2be 3one dwelling]! 26 For whom you struck, they pursued; and [2to 3the 4pain 5of my wounds 1they added]. 27 Add lawlessness upon their lawlessness! and let not [2enter 3in 1your righteousness]! 28 Let them be wiped away from out of the book of the living! and [3with 4the just 1let them not 2be written]! 29 [2poor 3and 4aching 1I am]; your deliverance, O God, may it take hold of me. 30 I will praise the name of my God with an ode; I shall magnify him in praise, 31 and it shall please God above [2calf 1a young 4horns 3bringing forth] and hoofs. 32 Let [2see 1the poor] and let them be glad! Inquire of God! and [2shall live 1your soul]. 33 For [2listens to 3the 4needy 1the lord]; and the ones of his being shackled he does not treat with contempt. 34 Let [3praise 4him 1the 2heavens], and the earth, sea, and all the things crawling in her! 35 For God shall deliver Zion, and [4shall be built up 1the 2cities 3of Judea]. And they shall dwell there, and they shall inherit her. 36 And the seed of your servants shall hold her; and the ones loving his name shall encamp in her.
