A Cry for Helpv
69 Save me, O God!
The water is up to my neck;
and there is no solid ground;
I am out in deep water,
and the waves are about to drown me.
and my throat is aching.
I have strained my eyes,
looking for your help.
4* Those who hate me for no reason
are more numerous than the hairs of my head.
My enemies tell lies against me;
they are strong and want to kill me.
They made me give back things I did not steal.
you know how foolish I have been.
Sovereign Lord Almighty!
Don’t let me bring disgrace to those who worship you,
O God of Israel!
and that I am covered with shame.
like a foreigner to my family.
9* My devotion to your Temple burns in me like a fire;
the insults which are hurled at you fall on me.
10 I humble myselfw by fasting,
and people insult me;
and they laugh at me.
and drunkards make up songs about me.
answer me, God, at a time you choose.
Answer me because of your great love,
because you keep your promise to save.
keep me safe from my enemies,
safe from the deep water.
don’t let me drown in the depths
or sink into the grave.
in your great compassion turn to me!
I am in great trouble—answer me now!
rescue me from my enemies.
how I am disgraced and dishonoured;
you see all my enemies.
and I am in despair.
I had hoped for sympathy, but there was none;
for comfort, but I found none.
21* When I was hungry, they gave me poison;
when I was thirsty, they offered me vinegar.
22* May their banquets cause their ruin;
may their sacred feasts cause their downfall.
23* Strike them with blindness!
Make their backs always weak!
let your indignation overtake them.
25* May their camps be left deserted;
may no one be left alive in their tents.
they talk about the sufferings of those you have wounded.
don’t let them have any part in your salvation.
28* May their names be erased from the book of the living;
may they not be included in the list of your people.
lift me up, O God, and save me!
I will proclaim his greatness by giving him thanks.
more than sacrificing a full-grown bull.
those who worship God will be encouraged.
and does not forget his people in prison.
seas and all creatures in them.
and rebuild the towns of Judah.
His people will live there and possess the land;
and those who love him will live there.
