Psalm 69 (WEBP)

[1] Save me, God, for the waters have come up to my neck!
[2] I sink in deep mire, where there is no foothold. I have come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me.
[3] I am weary with my crying. My throat is dry. My eyes fail looking for my God.
[4] Those who hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of my head. Those who want to cut me off, being my enemies wrongfully, are mighty. I have to restore what I didn’t take away.
[5] God, you know my foolishness. My sins aren’t hidden from you.
[6] Don’t let those who wait for you be shamed through me, Lord Yahweh of Armies. Don’t let those who seek you be brought to dishonor through me, God of Israel.
[7] Because for your sake, I have borne reproach. Shame has covered my face.
[8] I have become a stranger to my brothers, an alien to my mother’s children.
[9] For the zeal of your house consumes me. The reproaches of those who reproach you have fallen on me.
[10] When I wept and I fasted, that was to my reproach.
[11] When I made sackcloth my clothing, I became a byword to them.
[12] Those who sit in the gate talk about me. I am the song of the drunkards.
[13] But as for me, my prayer is to you, Yahweh, in an acceptable time. God, in the abundance of your loving kindness, answer me in the truth of your salvation.
[14] Deliver me out of the mire, and don’t let me sink. Let me be delivered from those who hate me, and out of the deep waters.
[15] Don’t let the flood waters overwhelm me, neither let the deep swallow me up. Don’t let the pit shut its mouth on me.
[16] Answer me, Yahweh, for your loving kindness is good. According to the multitude of your tender mercies, turn to me.
[17] Don’t hide your face from your servant, for I am in distress. Answer me speedily!
[18] Draw near to my soul and redeem it. Ransom me because of my enemies.
[19] You know my reproach, my shame, and my dishonor. My adversaries are all before you.
[20] Reproach has broken my heart, and I am full of heaviness. I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; for comforters, but I found none.
[21] They also gave me poison for my food. In my thirst, they gave me vinegar to drink.
[22] Let their table before them become a snare. May it become a retribution and a trap.
[23] Let their eyes be darkened, so that they can’t see. Let their backs be continually bent.
[24] Pour out your indignation on them. Let the fierceness of your anger overtake them.
[25] Let their habitation be desolate. Let no one dwell in their tents.
[26] For they persecute him whom you have wounded. They tell of the sorrow of those whom you have hurt.
[27] Charge them with crime upon crime. Don’t let them come into your righteousness.
[28] Let them be blotted out of the book of life, and not be written with the righteous.
[29] But I am in pain and distress. Let your salvation, God, protect me.
[30] I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.
[31] It will please Yahweh better than an ox, or a bull that has horns and hoofs.
[32] The humble have seen it, and are glad. You who seek after God, let your heart live.
[33] For Yahweh hears the needy, and doesn’t despise his captive people.
[34] Let heaven and earth praise him; the seas, and everything that moves therein!
[35] For God will save Zion, and build the cities of Judah. They shall settle there, and own it.
[36] The children also of his servants shall inherit it. Those who love his name shall dwell therein.

Psalm 69 (KJVS)

[1] «To the chief Musician H5329 (8764) upon Shoshannim H7799, [A Psalm] of David H1732.» Save H3467 (8685) me, O God H430; for the waters H4325 are come H935 (8804) in unto [my] soul H5315.
[2] I sink H2883 (8804) in deep H4688 mire H3121, where [there is] no standing H4613: I am come H935 (8804) into deep H4615 waters H4325, where the floods H7641 overflow H7857 (8804) me.
[3] I am weary H3021 (8804) of my crying H7121 (8800): my throat H1627 is dried H2787 (8738): mine eyes H5869 fail H3615 (8804) while I wait H3176 (8764) for my God H430.
[4] They that hate H8130 (8802) me without a cause H2600 are more H7231 (8804) than the hairs H8185 of mine head H7218: they that would destroy H6789 (8688) me, [being] mine enemies H341 (8802) wrongfully H8267, are mighty H6105 (8804): then I restored H7725 (8686) [that] which I took not away H1497 (8804).
[5] O God H430, thou knowest H3045 (8804) my foolishness H200; and my sins H819 are not hid H3582 (8738) from thee.
[6] Let not them that wait H6960 (8802) on thee, O Lord H136 GOD H3069 of hosts H6635, be ashamed H954 (8799) for my sake: let not those that seek H1245 (8764) thee be confounded H3637 (8735) for my sake, O God H430 of Israel H3478.
[7] Because for thy sake I have borne H5375 (8804) reproach H2781; shame H3639 hath covered H3680 (8765) my face H6440.
[8] I am become a stranger H2114 (8716) unto my brethren H251, and an alien H5237 unto my mother’s H517 children H1121.
[9] For the zeal H7068 of thine house H1004 hath eaten me up H398 (8804); and the reproaches H2781 of them that reproached H2778 (8802) thee are fallen H5307 (8804) upon me.
[10] When I wept H1058 (8799), [and chastened] my soul H5315 with fasting H6685, that was to my reproach H2781.
[11] I made H5414 (8799) sackcloth H8242 also my garment H3830; and I became a proverb H4912 to them.
[12] They that sit in H3427 (8802) the gate H8179 speak H7878 (8799) against me; and I [was] the song H5058 of the drunkards H8354 (8802) H7941.
[13] But as for me, my prayer H8605 [is] unto thee, O LORD H3068, [in] an acceptable H7522 time H6256: O God H430, in the multitude H7230 of thy mercy H2617 hear H6030 (8798) me, in the truth H571 of thy salvation H3468.
[14] Deliver H5337 (8685) me out of the mire H2916, and let me not sink H2883 (8799): let me be delivered H5337 (8735) from them that hate H8130 (8802) me, and out of the deep H4615 waters H4325.
[15] Let not the waterflood H4325 H7641 overflow H7857 (8799) me, neither let the deep H4688 swallow me up H1104 (8799), and let not the pit H875 shut H332 (8799) her mouth H6310 upon me.
[16] Hear H6030 (8798) me, O LORD H3068; for thy lovingkindness H2617 [is] good H2896: turn H6437 (8798) unto me according to the multitude H7230 of thy tender mercies H7356.
[17] And hide H5641 (8686) not thy face H6440 from thy servant H5650; for I am in trouble H6887 (8804): hear H6030 (8798) me speedily H4118.
[18] Draw nigh H7126 (8798) unto my soul H5315, [and] redeem H1350 (8798) it: deliver H6299 (8798) me because of mine enemies H341 (8802).
[19] Thou hast known H3045 (8804) my reproach H2781, and my shame H1322, and my dishonour H3639: mine adversaries H6887 (8802) [are] all before thee.
[20] Reproach H2781 hath broken H7665 (8804) my heart H3820; and I am full of heaviness H5136 (8799): and I looked H6960 (8762) [for some] to take pity H5110 (8800), but [there was] none; and for comforters H5162 (8764), but I found H4672 (8804) none.
[21] They gave H5414 (8799) me also gall H7219 for my meat H1267; and in my thirst H6772 they gave me vinegar H2558 to drink H8248 (8686).
[22] Let their table H7979 become a snare H6341 before H6440 them: and [that which should have been] for [their] welfare H7965, [let it become] a trap H4170.
[23] Let their eyes H5869 be darkened H2821 (8799), that they see H7200 (8800) not; and make their loins H4975 continually H8548 to shake H4571 (8685).
[24] Pour out H8210 (8798) thine indignation H2195 upon them, and let thy wrathful H2740 anger H639 take hold H5381 (8686) of them.
[25] Let their habitation H2918 be desolate H8074 (8737); [and] let none dwell H3427 (8802) in their tents H168.
[26] For they persecute H7291 (8804) [him] whom thou hast smitten H5221 (8689); and they talk H5608 (8762) to the grief H4341 of those whom thou hast wounded H2491.
[27] Add H5414 (8798) iniquity H5771 unto their iniquity H5771: and let them not come H935 (8799) into thy righteousness H6666.
[28] Let them be blotted H4229 (8735) out of the book H5612 of the living H2416, and not be written H3789 (8735) with the righteous H6662.
[29] But I [am] poor H6041 and sorrowful H3510 (8802): let thy salvation H3444, O God H430, set me up on high H7682 (8762).
[30] I will praise H1984 (8762) the name H8034 of God H430 with a song H7892, and will magnify H1431 (8762) him with thanksgiving H8426.
[31] [This] also shall please H3190 the LORD H3068 better H3190 (8799) than an ox H7794 [or] bullock H6499 that hath horns H7160 (8688) and hoofs H6536 (8688).
[32] The humble H6035 shall see H7200 (8804) [this, and] be glad H8055 (8799): and your heart H3824 shall live H2421 (8799) that seek H1875 (8802) God H430.
[33] For the LORD H3068 heareth H8085 (8802) the poor H34, and despiseth H959 (8804) not his prisoners H615.
[34] Let the heaven H8064 and earth H776 praise H1984 (8762) him, the seas H3220, and every thing that moveth H7430 (8802) therein.
[35] For God H430 will save H3467 (8686) Zion H6726, and will build H1129 (8799) the cities H5892 of Judah H3063: that they may dwell H3427 (8804) there, and have it in possession H3423 (8804).
[36] The seed H2233 also of his servants H5650 shall inherit H5157 (8799) it: and they that love H157 (8802) his name H8034 shall dwell H7931 (8799) therein.

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 69 (YLT)

[1] Save me, O God, for come have waters unto the soul.
[2] I have sunk in deep mire, And there is no standing, I have come into the depths of the waters, And a flood hath overflown me.
[3] I have been wearied with my calling, Burnt hath been my throat, Consumed have been mine eyes, waiting for my God.
[4] Those hating me without cause Have been more than the hairs of my head, Mighty have been my destroyers, My lying enemies, That which I took not away-I bring back.
[5] O God, Thou-Thou hast known Concerning my overturn, And my desolations from Thee have not been hid.
[6] Let not those waiting on Thee be ashamed because of me, O Lord, Jehovah of Hosts, Let not those seeking Thee Blush because of me, O God of Israel.
[7] For because of Thee I have borne reproach, Shame hath covered my face.
[8] A stranger I have been to my brother, And a foreigner to sons of my mother.
[9] For zeal for Thy house hath consumed me, And the reproaches of Thy reproachers Have fallen upon me.
[10] And I weep in the fasting of my soul, And it is for a reproach to me.
[11] And I make my clothing sackcloth, And I am to them for a simile.
[12] Those sitting at the gate meditate concerning me, And those drinking strong drink, Play on instruments.
[13] And I-my prayer is to Thee, O Jehovah, A time of good pleasure, O God, In the abundance of Thy kindness, Answer me in the truth of Thy salvation.
[14] Deliver me from the mire, and let me not sink, Let me be delivered from those hating me, And from deep places of waters.
[15] Let not a flood of waters overflow me, Nor let the deep swallow me up, Nor let the pit shut her mouth upon me.
[16] Answer me, O Jehovah, for good is Thy kindness, According to the abundance Of Thy mercies turn Thou unto me,
[17] And hide not Thy face from Thy servant, For I am in distress-haste, answer me.
[18] Be near unto my soul-redeem it, Because of mine enemies ransom me.
[19] Thou-Thou hast known my reproach, And my shame, and my blushing, Before Thee are all mine adversaries.
[20] Reproach hath broken my heart, and I am sick, And I look for a bemoaner, and there is none, And for comforters, and I have found none.
[21] And they give for my food gall, And for my thirst cause me to drink vinegar.
[22] Their table before them is for a snare, And for a recompence-for a trap.
[23] Darkened are their eyes from seeing, And their loins continually shake Thou.
[24] Pour upon them Thine indignation, And the fierceness of Thine anger doth seize them.
[25] Their tower is desolated, In their tents there is no dweller.
[26] For they have pursued him Thou hast smitten, And recount of the pain of Thy pierced ones.
[27] Give punishment for their iniquity, And they enter not into Thy righteousness.
[28] They are blotted out of the book of life, And with the righteous are not written.
[29] And I am afflicted and pained, Thy salvation, O God, doth set me on high.
[30] I praise the name of God with a song, And I magnify Him with thanksgiving,
[31] And it is better to Jehovah than an ox, A bullock-horned-hoofed.
[32] The humble have seen-they rejoice, Ye who seek God-and your heart liveth.
[33] For Jehovah hearkeneth unto the needy, And His bound ones He hath not despised.
[34] The heavens and earth do praise Him, Seas, and every moving thing in them.
[35] For God doth save Zion, And doth build the cities of Judah, And they have dwelt there, and possess it.
[36] And the seed of His servants inherit it, And those loving His name dwell in it!
