Song Preview for Psalm 69
1 Save me, O God;
for the waters are come in unto my
2 I sink in deep mire, where there
is no standing: I am come into
deep waters, where the floods
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
8 I am become a stranger unto my
brethren, and an alien unto my
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
11 I made sackcloth also my
garment; and I became a proverb to
12 They that sit in the gate speak
against me; and I was the song of
13 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.
14 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.
15 Let not the waterflood overflow
me, neither let the deep swallow
me up, and let not the pit shut
her mouth upon me.
16 Hear me, O LORD; for thy
lovingkindness is good: turn unto
me according to the multitude of
thy tender mercies.
17 And hide not thy face from thy
servant; for I am in trouble: hear
18 Draw nigh unto my soul, and
redeem it: deliver me because of
19 Thou hast known my reproach,
and my shame, and my dishonour:
mine adversaries are all before
20 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.
21 They gave me also gall for my
meat; and in my thirst they gave
me vinegar to drink.
22 Let their table become a snare
before them: and that which should
have been for their welfare, let
it become a trap.
23 Let their eyes be darkened,
that they see not; and make their
loins continually to shake.
24 Pour out thine indignation upon
them, and let thy wrathful anger
take hold of them.
25 Let their habitation be
desolate; and let none dwell in
26 For they persecute him whom
thou hast smitten; and they talk
to the grief of those whom thou
27 Add iniquity unto their
iniquity: and let them not come
into thy righteousness.
28 Let them be blotted out of the
book of the living, and not be
written with the righteous.
29 But I am poor and sorrowful:
let thy salvation, O God, set me
up on high.
30 I will praise the name of God
with a song, and will magnify him
31 This also shall please the LORD
better than an ox or bullock that
hath horns and hoofs.
32 The humble shall see this, and
be glad: and your heart shall live
that seek God.
33 For the LORD heareth the poor,
and despiseth not his prisoners.
34 Let the heaven and earth praise
him, the seas, and every thing
that moveth therein.
35 For God will save Zion, and
will build the cities of Judah:
that they may dwell there, and
have it in possession.
36 The seed also of his servants
shall inherit it: and they that
love his name shall dwell therein.
