   1: Be my saviour, O God; because the waters have come in, even to my neck.
   2: My feet are deep in the soft earth, where there is no support; I have come into deep waters, the waves are flowing over me.
   3: I am tired with my crying; my throat is burning: my eyes are wasted with waiting for my God.
   4: Those who have hate for me without cause are greater in number than the hairs of my head; those who are against me, falsely desiring my destruction, are very strong; I gave back what I had not taken away.
   5: O God, you see how foolish I am; and my wrongdoing is clear to you.
   6: Let not those who have hope in you be put to shame because of me, O Lord God of armies: let not those who are waiting for you be made low because of me, O God of Israel.
   7: I have been wounded with sharp words because of you; my face has been covered with shame.
   8: I have become strange to my brothers, and like a man from a far country to my mother's children.
   9: I am on fire with passion for your house; and the hard things which are said about you have come on me.
   10: My bitter weeping, and my going without food, were turned to my shame.
   11: When I put on the clothing of grief, they said evil of me.
   12: I am a cause of wonder to those in authority; a song to those who are given to strong drink.
   13: But as for me, let my prayer be made to you, O Lord, at a time when you are pleased; O God, give me an answer in your great mercy, for your salvation is certain.
   14: Take me from the grip of the sticky earth, so that I may not go down into it; let me be lifted up from the deep waters.
   15: Let me not be covered by the flowing waters; let not the deep waters go over my head, and let me not be shut up in the underworld.
   16: Give an answer to my words, O Lord; for your mercy is good: be turned to me, because of your great pity.
   17: Let not your face be covered from your servant, for I am in trouble; quickly give me an answer.
   18: Come near to my soul, for its salvation: be my saviour, because of those who are against me.
   19: You have seen my shame, how I was laughed at and made low; my haters are all before you.
   20: My heart is broken by bitter words, I am full of grief; I made a search for some to have pity on me, but there was no one; I had no comforter.
   21: They gave me poison for my food; and bitter wine for my drink.
   22: Let their table before them be for their destruction; let their feasts become a net to take them.
   23: Let their eyes be blind so that they may not see; let their bodies for ever be shaking.
   24: Let your curse come on them; let the heat of your wrath overtake them.
   25: Give their houses to destruction, and let there be no one in their tents.
   26: Because they are cruel to him against whom your hand is turned; they make bitter the grief of him who is wounded by you.
   27: Let their punishment be increased; let them not come into your righteousness.
   28: Let their names be taken from the book of the living, let them not be numbered with the upright.
   29: But I am poor and full of sorrow; let me be lifted up by your salvation, O Lord.
   30: I will give praise to the name of God with a song; I will give glory to him for what he has done.
   31: This will be more pleasing to the Lord than an ox, or a young ox of full growth.
   32: The poor will see it and be glad: you who are lovers of God, let your hearts have life.
   33: For the ears of the Lord are open to the poor, and he takes thought for his prisoners.
   34: Let the heavens and the earth give praise to him, the seas, and everything moving in them.
   35: For God will be the saviour of Zion, and the builder of the towns of Judah; so that it may be their resting-place and heritage.
   36: The seed of his servants will have their part in it, and there the lovers of his name will have rest.
