A Plea for Rescue

For the choir director: according to “The Lilies.” Of David.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:1 -

Save me, God,

for the water has risen to my neck.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:2 -

I have sunk in deep mud, and there is no footing;

I have come into deep water,

and a flood sweeps over me.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:3 -

I am weary from my crying;

my throat is parched.

My eyes fail, looking for my God.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:4 -

Those who hate me without cause

are more numerous than the hairs of my head;

my deceitful enemies, who would destroy me,

are powerful.

Though I did not steal, I must repay.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:5 -

God, you know my foolishness,

and my guilty acts are not hidden from you.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:6 -

Do not let those who put their hope in you

be disgraced because of me,

Lord God of Armies;

do not let those who seek you

be humiliated because of me,

God of Israel.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:7 -

For I have endured insults because of you,

and shame has covered my face.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:8 -

I have become a stranger to my brothers

and a foreigner to my mother’s sons

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:9 -

because zeal for your house has consumed me,

and the insults of those who insult you

have fallen on me.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:10 -

I mourned and fasted,

but it brought me insults.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:11 -

I wore sackcloth as my clothing,

and I was a joke to them.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:12 -

Those who sit at the city gate talk about me,

and drunkards make up songs about me.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:13 -

But as for me, Lord,

my prayer to you is for a time of favor.

In your abundant, faithful love, God,

answer me with your sure salvation.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:14 -

Rescue me from the miry mud; don’t let me sink.

Let me be rescued from those who hate me

and from the deep water.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:15 -

Don’t let the floodwaters sweep over me

or the deep swallow me up;

don’t let the Pit close its mouth over me.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:16 -

Answer me, Lord,

for your faithful love is good.

In keeping with your abundant compassion,

turn to me.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:17 -

Don’t hide your face from your servant,

for I am in distress.

Answer me quickly!

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:18 -

Come near to me and redeem me;

ransom me because of my enemies.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:19 -

You know the insults I endure —

my shame and disgrace.

You are aware of all my adversaries.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:20 -

Insults have broken my heart,

and I am in despair.

I waited for sympathy,

but there was none;

for comforters, but found no one.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:21 -

Instead, they gave me gall for my food,

and for my thirst

they gave me vinegar to drink.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:22 -

Let their table set before them be a snare,

and let it be a trap for their allies.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:23 -

Let their eyes grow too dim to see,

and let their hips continually quake.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:24 -

Pour out your rage on them,

and let your burning anger overtake them.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:25 -

Make their fortification desolate;

may no one live in their tents.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:26 -

For they persecute the one you struck

and talk about the pain of those you wounded.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:27 -

Charge them with crime on top of crime;

do not let them share in your righteousness.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:28 -

Let them be erased from the book of life

and not be recorded with the righteous.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:29 -

But as for me ​— ​poor and in pain —

let your salvation protect me, God.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:30 -

I will praise God’s name with song

and exalt him with thanksgiving.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:31 -

That will please the Lord more than an ox,

more than a bull with horns and hooves.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:32 -

The humble will see it and rejoice.

You who seek God, take heart!

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:33 -

For the Lord listens to the needy

and does not despise

his own who are prisoners.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:34 -

Let heaven and earth praise him,

the seas and everything that moves in them,

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:35 -

for God will save Zion

and build up[fn] the cities of Judah.

They will live there and possess it.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 69:36 -

The descendants of his servants will inherit it,

and those who love his name will live in it.
