Psalm 69:18–29

18 Draw near to my soul, and redeem it;

Deliver me because of my enemies.

19 You know jmy reproach, my shame, and my dishonor;

My adversaries are all before You.

20 Reproach has broken my heart,

And I am full of 7heaviness;

kI looked for someone to take pity, but there was none;

And for lcomforters, but I found none.

21 They also gave me gall for my food,

mAnd for my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.

22 nLet their table become a snare before them,

And their well-being a trap.

23 oLet their eyes be darkened, so that they do not see;

And make their loins shake continually.

24 pPour out Your indignation upon them,

And let Your wrathful anger take hold of them.

25 qLet their dwelling place be desolate;

Let no one live in their tents.

26 For they persecute the ones rYou have struck,

And talk of the grief of those You have wounded.

27 sAdd iniquity to their iniquity,

tAnd let them not come into Your righteousness.

28 Let them ube blotted out of the book of the living,

vAnd not be written with the righteous.

29 But I am poor and sorrowful;

Let Your salvation, O God, set me up on high.
