    Looking For God By Sons Of Korah


    Psalms 69

    1 Save me, O God,
    for the waters have come up to my neck.​
    2 I sink in the miry depths,
    where there is no foothold.​
    I have come into the deep waters;
    the floods engulf me.​
    3 I am worn out calling for help;
    my throat is parched.​
    My eyes fail,
    looking for my God.​
    4 Those who hate me without reason
    outnumber the hairs of my head;​
    many are my enemies without cause,
    those who seek to destroy me.​
    I am forced to restore
    what I did not steal.​

    5 You, God, know my folly;
    my guilt is not hidden from you.​
    6 Lord, the Lord Almighty,
    may those who hope in you
    not be disgraced because of me;​
    God of Israel,
    may those who seek you
    not be put to shame because of me.​
    7 For I endure scorn for your sake,
    and shame covers my face.​
    8 I am a foreigner to my own family,
    a stranger to my own mother’s children;​
    9 for zeal for your house consumes me,
    and the insults of those who insult you fall on me.​
    10 When I weep and fast,
    I must endure scorn;​
    11 when I put on sackcloth,
    people make sport of me.​
    12 Those who sit at the gate mock me,
    and I am the song of the drunkards.​

    13 But I pray to you, Lord,
    in the time of your favor;​
    in your great love, O God,
    answer me with your sure salvation.​
    14 Rescue me from the mire,
    do not let me sink;​
    deliver me from those who hate me,
    from the deep waters.​
    15 Do not let the floodwaters engulf me
    or the depths swallow me up
    or the pit close its mouth over me.​

    16 Answer me, Lord, out of the goodness of your love;
    in your great mercy turn to me.​
    17 Do not hide your face from your servant;
    answer me quickly, for I am in trouble.​
    18 Come near and rescue me;
    deliver me because of my foes.​

    19 You know how I am scorned, disgraced and shamed;
    all my enemies are before you.​
    20 Scorn has broken my heart
    and has left me helpless;​
    I looked for sympathy, but there was none,
    for comforters, but I found none.​
    21 They put gall in my food
    and gave me vinegar for my thirst.​

    22 May the table set before them become a snare;
    may it become retribution and a trap.​
    23 May their eyes be darkened so they cannot see,
    and their backs be bent forever.​
    24 Pour out your wrath on them;
    let your fierce anger overtake them.​
    25 May their place be deserted;
    let there be no one to dwell in their tents.​
    26 For they persecute those you wound
    and talk about the pain of those you hurt.​
    27 Charge them with crime upon crime;
    do not let them share in your salvation.​
    28 May they be blotted out of the book of life
    and not be listed with the righteous.​

    29 But as for me, afflicted and in pain—
    may your salvation, God, protect me.​

    30 I will praise God’s name in song
    and glorify him with thanksgiving.​
    31 This will please the Lord more than an ox,
    more than a bull with its horns and hooves.​
    32 The poor will see and be glad—
    you who seek God, may your hearts live!​
    33 The Lord hears the needy
    and does not despise his captive people.​

    34 Let heaven and earth praise him,
    the seas and all that move in them,​
    35 for God will save Zion
    and rebuild the cities of Judah.
    Then people will settle there and possess it;​
    36 the children of his servants will inherit it,
    and those who love his name will dwell there.
