Psalm 69:7; Psalm 69:8–15

For it is gfor your sake that I have borne reproach,

that dishonor has covered my face.


I have become ha stranger to my brothers,

an alien to my mother’s sons.

For izeal for your house has consumed me,

and jthe reproaches of those who reproach you have fallen on me.

10  When I wept and humbled1 my soul with fasting,

it became my reproach.

11  When I made ksackcloth my clothing,

I became la byword to them.

12  I am the talk of those who msit in the gate,

and the drunkards make nsongs about me.

13  But as for me, my oprayer is to you, O Lord.

At pan acceptable time, O God,

in the abundance of your steadfast love answer me in your saving faithfulness.

14  Deliver me

from sinking in qthe mire;

rlet me be delivered from my enemies

and from sthe deep waters.

15  Let not the flood sweep over me,

or the deep swallow me up,

or tthe pit close uits mouth over me.
