Psalms 69

ECB(i) 1 To His Eminence; On Shoshannim/Trumpets: By David. Save me, O Elohim; for the waters come to the soul. 2 I sink in deep mire, where there is no foothold; I come into depths of waters; the streams overflow me: 3 I belabored of my calling; my throat scorches; my eyes finish off as I await my Elohim. 4 They who hate me gratuitously - my exterminators abound by the myriads; my enemies of falseness, are mighty; I restored what I stripped not. 5 O Elohim, you know my folly; and my guiltinesses are not concealed from you. 6 O Adonay Yah Veh Sabaoth, may they who await you, not shame for my sake; may they who seek you, not shame for my sake, O Elohim of Yisra El. 7 Because of you, I bear reproach; shame covers my face: 8 I become a stranger to my brothers and a stranger to the sons of my mother: 9 for the zeal of your house eats me; and the reproaches of them who reproach you fall on me. 10 I weep in the fasting of my soul - my reproach; 11 I give saq for my robe; and I become a proverb to them. 12 They who settle in the portal meditate against me; - I the song of them drinking intoxicants. 13 And as for me, my prayer is to you, O Yah Veh: in a pleasant time, O Elohim, in the abundance of your mercy answer in the truth of your salvation. 14 Rescue me from the mire so that I not sink; - rescue from them who hate me and from the depths of waters: 15 may neither the water streams overflow me, nor the deep swallow me nor the well shut her mouth upon me. 16 Answer, O Yah Veh; for your mercy is good; face me according to the abundance of your tender mercies: 17 hide not your face from your servant; for I tribulate: answer me hastily. 18 Draw near my soul; redeem - because of my enemies, redeem me. 19 You know my reproach and my shame and my dishonor; my tribulators are all in front of you. 20 Reproach breaks my heart; I am full of heaviness; I await someone to wag, and there is no one; and for sighers, and I find none. 21 They give me rosh to chew; and in my thirst, fermentation to drink. 22 Their table becomes a snare at their face - a snare for their shalom: 23 their eyes darken that they see not; and they continually waver their loins. 24 Pour your rage on them so that your fuming wrath overtakes them. 25 Desolate their walls so that no one settles in their tents. 26 For they pursue whom you smite; and they scribe to the sorrow of your pierced. 27 Give perversity for their perversity; that they come not into your justness: 28 - wiped out of the scroll of the living - not scribed with the just. 29 And I humble myself and pain; your salvation, O Elohim, lofts me: 30 I halal the name of Elohim with a song and greaten him with spread hands: 31 And this well-pleases Yah Veh better than an ox or bullock - horned and hoofed. 32 The humble see, and cheer; your heart lives - you who seek Elohim. 33 For Yah Veh hears the needy and despises not his bound. 34 The heavens and earth halal him - the seas and every creeper. 35 For Elohim saves Siyon and builds the cities of Yah Hudah; for them to settle there and possess. 36 The seed also of his servants inherit; and they who love his name tabernacle therein.
