3 fI am weary of my crying: my throat is dried:
They that would destroy me, being mine enemies wrongfully, are mighty:
kThen I restored that which I took not away.
And my †sins are not hid from thee.
Let not those that seek thee be confounded for my sake, O God of Israel.
7 Because lfor thy sake I have borne reproach;
Shame hath covered my face.
And an alien unto my mother’s children.
9 For othe zeal of thine house hath eaten me up;
And pthe reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.
10 When I wept, and chastened qmy soul with fasting,
That was to my reproach.
And I became sa proverb to them.
O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation.
15 Let not the awaterflood overflow me,
Neither let athe deep swallow me up,
16 Hear me, O Lord; dfor thy lovingkindness is good:
17 And ghide not thy face from thy servant;
Deliver me because of mine enemies.
Mine adversaries are all before thee.
20 Reproach hath broken my heart; and lI am full of heaviness:
And for ncomforters, but I found none.
21 They gave me also ogall for my meat;
And that which should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap.
23 tLet their eyes be darkened, that they see not;
And umake their loins continually to shake.
And let thy wrathful anger take hold of them.
And †let none dwell in their tents.
And let them not come into thy righteousness.
28 Let them be blotted out of dthe book of the living,
And not be ewritten with the righteous.
Let thy salvation, O God, fset me up on high.
31 hThis also shall please the Lord better than an ox
Or bullock that hath horns and ihoofs.
And lyour heart shall live that seek God.
And mdespiseth not his prisoners.
34 nLet the heaven and earth praise him,
The seas, and every thing that †moveth therein.
35 oFor God will save Zion,
And will build the cities of Judah:
That they may dwell there, and phave it in possession.
