   1: Save me, O God; For the waters are come in unto my soul.
   2: I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing: I am come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me.
   3: I am weary with my crying; my throat is dried: Mine eyes fail while I wait for my God.
   4: They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of my head: They that would cut me off, being mine enemies wrongfully, are mighty: That which I took not away I have to restore.
   5: O God, thou knowest my foolishness; And my sins are not hid from thee.
   6: Let not them that wait for thee be put to shame through me, O Lord Jehovah of hosts: Let not those that seek thee be brought to dishonor through me, O God of Israel.
   7: Because for thy sake I have borne reproach; Shame hath covered my face.
   8: I am become a stranger unto my brethren, And an alien unto my mother's children.
   9: For the zeal of thy house hath eaten me up; And the reproaches of them that reproach thee are fallen upon me.
   10: When I wept, [and chastened] my soul with fasting, That was to my reproach.
   11: When I made sackcloth my clothing, I became a byword unto them.
   12: They that sit in the gate talk of me; And [I am] the song of the drunkards.
   13: But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O Jehovah, in an acceptable time: O God, in the abundance of thy lovingkindness, Answer me in the truth of thy salvation.
   14: Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink: Let me be delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters.
   15: Let not the waterflood overwhelm me, Neither let the deep shallow me up; And let not the pit shut its mouth upon me.
   16: Answer me, O Jehovah; for thy lovingkindness is good: According to the multitude of thy tender mercies turn thou unto me.
   17: And hide not thy face from thy servant; For I am in distress; answer me speedily.
   18: Draw nigh unto my soul, and redeem it: Ransom me because of mine enemies.
   19: Thou knowest my reproach, and my shame, and my dishonor: Mine adversaries are all before thee.
   20: Reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness: And I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; And for comforters, but I found none.
   21: They gave me also gall for my food; And in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.
   22: Let their table before them become a snare; And when they are in peace, [let it become] a trap.
   23: Let their eyes be darkened, so that they cannot see; And make their loins continually to shake.
   24: Pour out thine indignation upon them, And let the fierceness of thine anger overtake them.
   25: Let their habitation be desolate; Let none dwell in their tents.
   26: For they persecute him whom thou hast smitten; And they tell of the sorrow of those whom thou hast wounded.
   27: Add iniquity unto their iniquity; And let them not come into thy righteousness.
   28: Let them be blotted out of the book of life, And not be written with the righteous.
   29: But I am poor and sorrowful: Let thy salvation, O God, set me up on high.
   30: I will praise the name of God with a song, And will magnify him with thanksgiving.
   31: And it will please Jehovah better than an ox, [Or] a bullock that hath horns and hoofs.
   32: The meek have seen it, and are glad: Ye that seek after God, let your heart live.
   33: For Jehovah heareth the needy, And despiseth not his prisoners.
   34: Let heaven and earth praise him, The seas, and everything that moveth therein.
   35: For God will save Zion, and build the cities of Judah; And they shall abide there, and have it in possession.
   36: The seed also of his servants shall inherit it; And they that love his name shall dwell therein.
