Psalms 69

David complaineth of his affliction.

Psalms 69:1 {To the chiefe musition vpon Sosanim (a psalme) of Dauid.} Saue me O Lorde: for waters haue entred in vnto my soule. Psalms 69:2 I am ouer the head in deepe myre where I feele no grounde: I plunge in deepe waters where the streame ouerwhelmeth me. Psalms 69:3 I am weery of crying, my throte is drye: my syght fayleth me through the long attendaunce that I haue geuen vpon my Lorde. Psalms 69:4 They that hate me without a cause are mo then the heeres of my head: they that are myne enemies and woulde destroy me giltlesse are mightie, I payde them the thynges that I neuer toke. Psalms 69:5 God thou knowest my folly: and my faultes are not hyd from thee. Psalms 69:6 Let not them that trust in thee O Lorde God of hoastes, be for my cause ashamed: let not those that seke thee, be through me confounded O Lorde of Israel. Psalms 69:7 For thy sake haue I suffered reprofe, shame hath couered my face: Psalms 69:8 I am become a straunger vnto my brethren, euen an aliaunt vnto my mothers children. Psalms 69:9 For the zeale of thine house hath euen eaten me: and the rebukes of them that rebuked thee, are fallen vpon me. Psalms 69:10 And I wept [chastenyng] my soule with fastyng: and that was turned to my reproofe. Psalms 69:11 Also I put on sackcloth for my garment: and they iested at me. Psalms 69:12 They that sit in the gate speake agaynst me: and they that drynke strong drynke [make] songes [vpon me.]

He prayeth for deliverance.

Psalms 69:13 But [I make] my prayer vnto thee O God in an acceptable tyme: heare me O Lord in the multitude of thy mercie, according to the trueth of thy saluation. Psalms 69:14 Take me out of the myre, that I sincke not: oh let me be delyuered from them that hate me, & out of the deepe waters. Psalms 69:15 Let not the water fludde drowne me, neither let the deepe swalowe me vp: & let not the pyt shut her mouth vpon me. Psalms 69:16 Heare me O God, for thy louyng kindnesse is comfortable: turne thee vnto me accordyng vnto the multitude of thy mercies. Psalms 69:17 And hyde not thy face from thy seruaunt, for I am in trouble: O haste thee [and] heare me. Psalms 69:18 Draw nigh vnto my soule & redeeme it: for myne enemies sake oh redeeme me. Psalms 69:19 Thou hast knowen my reproofe, my shame, and my dishonour: myne aduersaries are all in thy syght. Psalms 69:20 Reproofe hath broke my heart a peeces, I am full of heauinesse: I loked for some to haue pitie on me, but there was none, and for some that shoulde comfort me, but I coulde fynde none. Psalms 69:21 They gaue me for meate, gall to eate: and when I was thirstie, they gaue me vineger to drynke.

He denoteth his enemies with destruction.

Psalms 69:22 Let their table be as a snare before them: and in steade of aboundaunce of peace, let it be a meanes of destruction. Psalms 69:23 Let their eyes be blynded that they see not: and euer bowe downe their loynes. Psalms 69:24 Powre out thine indignation vpon them: and let thy wrathfull displeasure take holde of them. Psalms 69:25 Let their habitation be desolate: and let no man dwell in their tabernacles. Psalms 69:26 For they persecute hym whom thou hast smitten: and they talke of the griefe of them whom thou hast wounded. Psalms 69:27 Let them fall from one wickednesse to another: and let them not enter into thy ryghteousnesse. Psalms 69:28 Let them be wyped out of the booke of the lyuyng: and not to be written among the ryghteous. Psalms 69:29 As for me I am afflicted and in heauinesse: thy sauing helpe O Lorde shal defende me.

He praiseth God with thanksgiving.

Psalms 69:30 I wyll prayse the name of the Lorde with a song: and magnifie hym with a solemne confession. Psalms 69:31 And it wyll please God: better then a bullocke that hath hornes and hoofes. Psalms 69:32 The humble wyll consider this and be glad, such as seke after God: and your soule shall lyue. Psalms 69:33 For God heareth the poore: & dispiseth not his prisoners. Psalms 69:34 Let heauen and earth prayse hym: the sea and all that moueth therin. Psalms 69:35 For the Lorde wyll saue Sion, and builde the cities of Iehuda: that men may dwel there and haue it in possession. Psalms 69:36 The posteritie also of his seruauntes shall inherite it: and they that loue his name shall dwell therin.
