[A Psalm] of David.  1SAVE ME, O God, for the waters have come up to my neck [they threaten my life]2I sink in deep mire, where there is no foothold; I have come into deep waters, where the floods overwhelm me.3I am weary with my crying; my throat is parched; my eyes fail with waiting [hopefully] for my God 4Those who hate me without cause are more than the hairs of my head; those who would cut me off and destroy me, being my enemies wrongfully, are many and mighty. I am [forced] to restore what I did not steal.(A)5O God, You know my folly and blundering; my sins and my guilt are not hidden from You.6Let not those who wait and hope and look for You, O Lord of hosts, be put to shame through me; let not those who seek and inquire for and require You [as their vital necessity] be brought to confusion and dishonor through me, O God of Israel.7Because for Your sake I have borne taunt and reproach; confusion and shame have covered my face.8I have become a stranger to my brethren, and an alien to my mother's children.(B9For zeal for Your house has eaten me up, and the reproaches and insults of those who reproach and insult You have fallen upon me.(C)10When I wept and humbled myself with fasting, I was jeered at and humiliated;11When I made sackcloth my clothing, I became a byword (an object of scorn) to them. Psalm 69:1-21 ( persecution-answer ) : Psalm 69:1-21 ( persecution-answer ) 13But as for me, my prayer is to You, O Lord. At an acceptable and opportune time, O God, in the multitude of Your mercy and the abundance of Your loving-kindness hear me, and in the truth and faithfulness of Your salvation answer me.14Rescue me out of the mire, and let me not sink; let me be delivered from those who hate me and from out of the deep waters.15Let not the floodwaters overflow and overwhelm me, neither let the deep swallow me up nor the [dug] pit [with water perhaps in the bottom] close its mouth over me.16Hear and answer me, O Lord, for Your loving-kindness is sweet and comforting; according to Your plenteous tender mercy and steadfast love turn to me.17Hide not Your face from Your servant, for I am in distress; O answer me speedily!18Draw close to me and redeem me; ransom and set me free because of my enemies [lest they glory in my prolonged distress]!19You know my reproach and my shame and my dishonor; my adversaries are all before You [fully known to You].20Insults and reproach have broken my heart; I am full of heaviness and I am distressingly sick. I looked for pity, but there was none, and for comforters, but I found none.21They gave me also gall [poisonous and bitter] for my food, and in my thirst they gave me vinegar (a soured wine) to drink.(D) :
