PSALM 69 BY ALEXADER MACLAREPSALM LXIX.1 Save me, O God ;For the waters have come in even to [my] soul.2 I am sunk in the mud of an abyss, without standing-groundI am come into depths of waters, and a flood has overwhelmed me.3 I am weary with my crying ; my throat is parched,My eyes fail whilst I wait for my God.4 More than the hairs of my head are they who hate me withoutprovocation.Strong are my destroyers, my enemies wrongfully.What I did not rob, then I must restore.5 God, Thou, Thou knowest my folly,And my guiltinesses are not hidden from Thee.6 Let not those who wait for Thee be put to shame through me,Lord, Jehovah of hosts :Let not those be confounded through me who seek Thee, O Godof Israel.7 For Thy sake have I borne reproach;Confusion has covered my face.8 I have become a stranger to my brothers,And an alien to my mother's sons.9 For zeal for Thine house has consumed me,
And the reproaches of those that reproach Thee have fallenupon me.10 And 1 wept, in fasting my soul [wept] ;And that became [matter of] reproaches to me.11 Also I made sackcloth my clothing;And I became to them a proverb.12 They who sit at the gate talk of me,And the songs of the quaffers of strong drink [are about mej.13 But as for me, my prayer is unto Thee, Jehovah, in a time of favour,O God, in the greatness of Thy loving-kindness,Answer me in the troth of Thy salvation.293sg* THE PSALMS14 Deliver me from [the] mire, that I sink not,Rescue me from those who hate me, and from depths of waters.15 Let not the flood of waters overwhelm me,And let not the abyss swallow me,And let not [the] pit close her mouth over me.16 Answer me, Jehovah ; for Thy loving-kindness is good 1In the multitude of Thy compassions turn toward me.
17 And hide not Thy face from Thy servant,For I am in straits ; answer me speedily.18 Draw near to my soul, redeem it,Because of my enemies set me free.19 Thpu, Thou knowest my reproach, and my shame, and myconfusion.Before Thee are all my adversaries.20 Reproach has broken my heart ; and I am sick unto death,And I looked for pitying, and there was none,And /or comforters, and found none.21 But they gave me gall for my food,And for my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.22 Let their table become before them a snare,And to them in their peacefulness, [let it become] a trap.23 Darkened be their eyes, that they see not,And make their loins continually to quake.24 Pour out upon them Thine indignation,And let the glow of Thyjvrath overtake them.25 May their encampment be desolate IIn their tents may there be no dweller 126 For him whom Thou, Thou hast smitten, they persecute,And they tell of the pain of Thy wounded ones.27 Add iniquity to their iniquity,
