Psalms 69

1  To the chief Musician upon Shoshannim, A Psalm of David. Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto my soul.

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

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

4  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.

5  O God, thou knowest my foolishness; and my sins are not hid from thee.

6  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.

7  Because for thy sake I have borne reproach; shame hath covered my face.

8  I am become a stranger unto my brethren, and an alien unto my mother's children.

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

10  When I wept, and chastened my soul with fasting, that was to my reproach.
