Psalms 69:1-10

Save Me, O God

To the choirmaster: according to aLilies. Of David.

1 Save me, O God!
For bthe waters have come up to my neck.
Or  waters threaten my life

2I sink in deep dmire,
where there is no foothold;
I have come into deep waters,
and the flood esweeps over me.
3 fI am weary with my crying out;
gmy throat is parched.
hMy eyes grow dim
with iwaiting for my God.
4 jMore in number than the hairs of my head
are kthose who hate me lwithout cause;
mighty are those who would destroy me,
mthose who attack me with lies.
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.
6 Let not those who hope in you nbe put to shame through me,
O Lord God of hosts;
let not those who seek you be brought to dishonor through me,
O God of Israel.
7For it is ofor your sake that I have borne reproach,
that dishonor has covered my face.
8I have become pa stranger to my brothers,
an alien to my mother’s sons.
9 For qzeal for your house has consumed me,
and rthe reproaches of those who reproach you have fallen on me.
10When I wept and humbled
Hebrew lacks  and humbled
my soul with fasting,
it became my reproach.
