Psalm 69 ©
1 David complaineth of his affliction: 7 , 19 and of the reproach and insults of his enemies: 13 he prayeth for deliverance: 22 he devoteth his enemies to destruction: 30 he engageth to praise God with thanksgiving. 34 The whole creation is called upon to praise God for his goodness to the church.
O God, hthou knowest my foolishness; and my 3sins are not hid from thee.
For mthe zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; nand the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.
gReproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness: and I looked for some 6to take pity, hbut there was none; and for comforters, but I found none.
They gave me also gall for my meat; iand in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.
Let ktheir eyes be darkened, that they see not; and make their loins continually to shake.
lPour out thine indignation upon them, and let thy wrathful anger take hold of them.
mLet 7their habitation be desolate; and 8let none dwell in their tents.
Add 10iniquity ounto their iniquity: and let them not come into thy righteousness.
For yGod will save Zion, and will build the cities of Judah: that they may dwell there, and have it in possession.
