Psalms 69

David complaineth of his affliction.

Psalms 69:1 {To the Chief Musician. On "The Lilies." David's.} Save me, O God, For waters have entered as far as the life; Psalms 69:2 I have sunk in deep swamp, Where there is no place to stand, I have come into abysses of waters, Where a flood hath overflowed me; Psalms 69:3 I am weary with mine outcry, Parched is my throat,—Mine eyes have become dim, through waiting for my God. Psalms 69:4 More than the hairs of my head, Are they who hate me without cause,—Firmer than my bones, Are they who are my foes for false cause,—What I had not plundered, then, had I to restore. Psalms 69:5 O God, thou, hast known my folly, And, my wrong-doings, from thee, have not been hid. Psalms 69:6 Let them not be ashamed, through me, Who have waited for thee, O My Lord, Yahweh of hosts,—Let them not be confounded, through me, Who are seeking thee, O God of Israel! Psalms 69:7 Because, for thy sake, have I borne reproach, Confusion hath covered my face; Psalms 69:8 One estranged, have I become, to my own brethren, Yea, an alien, to the sons of my own mother; Psalms 69:9 Because, zeal for thy house, hath eaten me up, And, the reproaches of them who have reproached thee, have fallen upon me. Psalms 69:10 When I have humbled my soul with fasting, Then hath it turned to my reproach; Psalms 69:11 When I have made my clothing of sackcloth, Then have I served them for a by-word; Psalms 69:12 They who sit in the gate talk against me,—And [against me are] the songs of them who imbibe strong drink.

He prayeth for deliverance.

Psalms 69:13 But, as for me, my prayer shall be unto thee, O Yahweh, in a time of acceptance, O God, in the abounding of thy lovingkindness, answer me with thy saving faithfulness. Psalms 69:14 Rescue me out of the mire, lest I sink, Let me be rescued, From my haters, and, From abysses of waters: Psalms 69:15 Let not a flood of waters overflow me, And let not the depth swallow me up, Neither let the well close, over me, her mouth. Psalms 69:16 Answer me, O Yahweh, for good is thy lovingkindness, According to the abounding of thy compassions, turn thou towards me: Psalms 69:17 Then do not hide thy face from thy servant, Because I am in distress, haste thou—answer me! Psalms 69:18 Oh draw near unto my soul—redeem it, Because of mine enemies, ransom me. Psalms 69:19 Thou, knowest my reproach, and my shame, and my confusion, Before thee, are all mine adversaries. Psalms 69:20 Reproach hath broken my heart, and I am weak,—Though I waited for one to pity me, yet there was none, And for comforters, yet I found not any. Psalms 69:21 But they put in my food—poison! And, for my thirst, they gave for my drink—vinegar!

He denoteth his enemies with destruction.

Psalms 69:22 Let their table, before them, become a snare, And unto their friends, a lure; Psalms 69:23 Let their eyes become too dim to see, And, their loins, continually cause thou to shake; Psalms 69:24 Pour out over them thine indignation, And let, the glow of thine anger, overtake them: Psalms 69:25 Let their encampment become desolate, In their tents, be there none to dwell: Psalms 69:26 For, whom, thou thyself, hadst smitten, they pursued, And, unto the pain of thy wounded ones, they must needs add. Psalms 69:27 Lay punishment on their iniquity, And let them not enter into thy righteousness; Psalms 69:28 Let them be blotted out of the book of life, And, with the righteous, let them not be enrolled. Psalms 69:29 I, then, am humbled and in pain, Thy salvation, O God, may it set me on high.

He praiseth God with thanksgiving.

Psalms 69:30 I will praise the Name of God with a song, And will magnify him with thanksgiving; Psalms 69:31 So shall it be more pleasing to Yahweh than a bullock of the herd, Showing horn [and] divided hoof. Psalms 69:32 The humbled have seen—they rejoice! Ye seekers of God, let your heart, then, revive; Psalms 69:33 For, a Hearkener to the needy, is Yahweh, And, his prisoners, hath he not despised. Psalms 69:34 Let the heavens and the earth, praise him, The seas, and everything that creepeth therein. Psalms 69:35 For, God, will save Zion, And build the cities of Judah, So shall men dwell there, and possess it: Psalms 69:36 Yea, the seed of his servants, shall inherit it, And, the lovers of his Name, shall settle down therein.
