019:069:001
Save me,
O God;
for the waters are come in unto my soul.


019:069:002
I sink in deep mire,
where there is no standing:
I am come into deep waters,
where the floods overflow me.


019:069:003
I am weary of my crying:
my throat is dried:
mine eyes fail while I wait for my God.


019:069:004
They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of mine head:
they that would destroy me,
being mine enemies wrongfully,
are mighty:
then I restored that which I took not away.


019:069:005
O God,
thou knowest my foolishness;
and my sins are not hid from thee.


019:069:006
Let not them that wait on thee,
O Lord GOD of hosts,
be ashamed for my sake:
let not those that seek thee be confounded for my sake,
O God of Israel.


019:069:007
Because for thy sake I have borne reproach;
shame hath covered my face.


019:069:008
I am become a stranger unto my brethren,
and an alien unto my mother's children.


019:069:009
For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up;
and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.


019:069:010
When I wept,
and chastened my soul with fasting,
that was to my reproach.


019:069:011
I made sackcloth also my garment;
and I became a proverb to them.


019:069:012
They that sit in the gate speak against me;
and I was the song of the drunkards.


019:069:013
But as for me,
my prayer is unto thee,
O LORD,
in an acceptable time:
O God,
in the multitude of thy mercy hear me,
in the truth of thy salvation.


019:069:014
Deliver me out of the mire,
and let me not sink:
let me be delivered from them that hate me,
and out of the deep waters.


019:069:015
Let not the waterflood overflow me,
neither let the deep swallow me up,
and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me.


019:069:016
Hear me,
O LORD;
for thy lovingkindness is good:
turn unto me according to the multitude of thy tender mercies.


019:069:017
And hide not thy face from thy servant;
for I am in trouble:
hear me speedily.


019:069:018
Draw nigh unto my soul,
and redeem it:
deliver me because of mine enemies.


019:069:019
Thou hast known my reproach,
and my shame,
and my dishonour:
mine adversaries are all before thee.


019:069:020
Reproach hath broken my heart;
and I am full of heaviness:
and I looked for some to take pity,
but there was none;
and for comforters,
but I found none.


019:069:021
They gave me also gall for my meat;
and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.


019:069:022
Let their table become a snare before them:
and that which should have been for their welfare,
let it become a trap.


019:069:023
Let their eyes be darkened,
that they see not;
and make their loins continually to shake.


019:069:024
Pour out thine indignation upon them,
and let thy wrathful anger take hold of them.


019:069:025
Let their habitation be desolate;
and let none dwell in their tents.


019:069:026
For they persecute him whom thou hast smitten;
and they talk to the grief of those whom thou hast wounded.


019:069:027
Add iniquity unto their iniquity:
and let them not come into thy righteousness.


019:069:028
Let them be blotted out of the book of the living,
and not be written with the righteous.


019:069:029
But I am poor and sorrowful:
let thy salvation,
O God,
set me up on high.


019:069:030
I will praise the name of God with a song,
and will magnify him with thanksgiving.


019:069:031
This also shall please the LORD better than an ox or bullock that hath horns and hoofs.


019:069:032
The humble shall see this,
and be glad:
and your heart shall live that seek God.


019:069:033
For the LORD heareth the poor,
and despiseth not his prisoners.


019:069:034
Let the heaven and earth praise him,
the seas,
and every thing that moveth therein.


019:069:035
For God will save Zion,
and will build the cities of Judah:
that they may dwell there,
and have it in possession.


019:069:036
The seed also of his servants shall inherit it:
and they that love his name shall dwell therein.
