To the chiefH5329 MusicianH5329 upon Shoshannim,H7799 A Psalm of David.H1732 SaveH3467 me, O God;H430 for the watersH4325 are comeH935 in to my soul.H5315
I sinkH2883 in deepH4688 mire,H3121 where there is noH369 standing:H4613 I am comeH935 into deepH4615 waters,H4325 where the floodsH7641 overflowH7857 me.
I am wearyH3021 of my crying:H7121 my throatH1627 is dried:H2787 my eyesH5869 failH3615 while I waitH3176 for my God.H430
They that hateH8130 me withoutH2600 a causeH2600 are moreH7231 than the hairsH8185 of my head:H7218 they that would destroyH6789 me, being my enemiesH341 wrongfully,H8267 are mighty:H6105 thenH227 I restoredH7725 that whichH834 I tookH1497 not away.H1497
O God,H430 you knowH3045 my foolishness;H200 and my sinsH819 are not hidH3582 from you.
Let not them that waitH6960 on you, O LordH136 GODH3069 of hosts,H6635 be ashamedH954 for my sake: let not those that seekH1245 you be confoundedH3637 for my sake, O GodH430 of Israel.H3478
BecauseH3588 for your sakeH5921 I have borneH5375 reproach;H2781 shameH3639 has coveredH3680 my face.H6440
I am becomeH1961 a strangerH2114 to my brothers,H251 and an alienH5237 to my mother'sH517 children.H1121
For the zealH7068 of your houseH1004 has eatenH398 me up; and the reproachesH2781 of them that reproachedH2778 you are fallenH5307 on me.
When I wept,H1058 and chastened my soulH5315 with fasting,H6685 that was to my reproach.H2781
I madeH5414 sackclothH8242 also my garment;H3830 and I becameH1961 a proverbH4912 to them.
They that sitH3427 in the gateH8179 speakH7878 against me; and I was the songH5058 of the drunkards.H8354 H7941
But as for me, my prayerH8605 is to you, O LORD,H3068 in an acceptableH7522 time:H6256 O God,H430 in the multitudeH7230 of your mercyH2617 hearH6030 me, in the truthH571 of your salvation.H3468
DeliverH5337 me out of the mire,H2916 and let me not sink:H2883 let me be deliveredH5337 from them that hateH8130 me, and out of the deepH4615 waters.H4325
Let not the floodH7641 H4325 overflowH7857 me, neitherH408 let the deepH4688 swallowH1104 me up, and let not the pitH875 shutH332 her mouthH6310 on me.
HearH6030 me, O LORD;H3068 for your loving kindnessH2617 is good:H2896 turnH6437 to me according to the multitudeH7230 of your tender mercies.H7356
And hideH5641 not your faceH6440 from your servant;H5650 for I am in trouble:H6887 hearH6030 me speedily.H4118
Draw nearH7126 to my soul,H5315 and redeemH1350 it: deliverH6299 me becauseH4616 of my enemies.H341
You have knownH3045 my reproach,H2781 and my shame,H1322 and my dishonor:H3639 my adversariesH6887 are allH3605 beforeH5048 you.
ReproachH2781 has brokenH7665 my heart;H3820 and I am full of heaviness:H5136 and I lookedH6960 for some to take pity,H5110 but there was none;H369 and for comforters,H5162 but I foundH4672 none.H3808
They gaveH5414 me also gallH7219 for my meat;H1267 and in my thirstH6772 they gave me vinegarH2558 to drink.H8248
Let their tableH7979 becomeH1961 a snareH6341 beforeH6440 them: and that which should have been for their welfare,H7965 let it become a trap.H4170
Let their eyesH5869 be darkened,H2821 that they seeH7200 not; and make their loinsH4975 continuallyH8548 to shake.H4571
PourH8210 out your indignationH2195 on them, and let your wrathfulH2740 angerH639 takeH5381 holdH5381 of them.
Let their habitationH2918 be desolate;H8074 and let noneH408 dwellH3427 in their tents.H168
For they persecuteH7291 him whomH834 you have smitten;H5221 and they talkH5608 to the griefH4341 of those whom you have wounded.H2491
AddH5414 iniquityH5771 to their iniquity:H5771 and let them not comeH935 into your righteousness.H6666
Let them be blottedH4229 out of the bookH5612 of the living,H2416 and not be writtenH3789 with the righteous.H6662
But I am poorH6041 and sorrowful:H3510 let your salvation,H3444 O God,H430 set me up on high.H7682
I will praiseH1984 the nameH8034 of GodH430 with a song,H7892 and will magnifyH1431 him with thanksgiving.H8426
This also shall pleaseH3190 the LORDH3068 betterH3190 than an oxH7794 or bullockH6499 that has hornsH7160 and hoofs.H6536
The humbleH6041 shall seeH7200 this, and be glad:H8056 and your heartH3824 shall liveH2421 that seekH1875 God.H430
For the LORDH3068 hearsH8085 the poor,H34 and despisesH959 not his prisoners.H615
Let the heavenH8064 and earthH776 praiseH1984 him, the seas,H3220 and everyH3605 thing that movesH7430 therein.
For GodH430 will saveH3467 Zion,H6726 and will buildH1129 the citiesH5892 of Judah:H3063 that they may dwellH3427 there, and have it in possession.H3423
The seedH2233 also of his servantsH5650 shall inheritH5157 it: and they that loveH157 his nameH8034 shall dwellH7931 therein.
