   1: To the chief Musician upon Shoshannim, [A Psalm] of David. Save me, O God; for the waters are come in to [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 of my crying: my throat is dried: my 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 destroy me, [being] my enemies wrongfully, are mighty: then I restored [that] which I took not away.
   5: O God, thou knowest my foolishness; and my sins are not hid from thee.
   6: Let not them that wait on thee, O Lord GOD of hosts, be ashamed for my sake: let not those that seek thee be confounded for my sake, O God of Israel.
   7: Because for thy sake I have borne reproach; shame hath covered my face.
   8: I am become a stranger to my brethren, and an alien to my mother's children.
   9: For the zeal of thy house hath eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached thee have fallen upon me.
   10: When I wept, [and chastened] my soul with fasting, that was to my reproach.
   11: I made sackcloth also my garment; and I became a proverb to them.
   12: They that sit in the gate speak against me; and I [was] the song of the drunkards.
   13: But as for me, my prayer [is] to thee, O LORD, [in] an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear 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 water-flood overflow me, neither let the deep swallow me up, and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me.
   16: Hear me, O LORD; for thy loving-kindness [is] good: turn to me according to the multitude of thy tender mercies.
   17: And hide not thy face from thy servant; for I am in trouble: hear me speedily.
   18: Draw nigh to my soul, [and] redeem it: deliver me because of my enemies.
   19: Thou hast known my reproach, and my shame, and my dishonor: my 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 become a snare before them: and [that which should have been] for [their] welfare, [let it become] a trap.
   23: Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not; and make their loins continually to shake.
   24: Pour out thy indignation upon them, and let thy wrathful anger take hold of them.
   25: Let their habitation be desolate; [and] let none dwell in their tents.
   26: For they persecute [him] whom thou hast smitten; and they talk to the grief of those whom thou hast wounded.
   27: Add iniquity to their iniquity: and let them not come into thy righteousness.
   28: Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, 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: [This] also shall please the LORD better than an ox [or] bullock that hath horns and hoofs.
   32: The humble shall see [this], [and] be glad: and your heart shall live that seek God.
   33: For the LORD heareth the poor, and despiseth not his prisoners.
   34: Let the heaven and earth praise him, the seas, and every thing that moveth therein.
   35: For God will save Zion, and will build the cities of Judah: that they may dwell 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.
