1Save me, O God! For #Job 22:11; Jon. 2:5the waters have come up to my neck. 2#Ps. 40:2I sink in deep mire, Where there is no standing; I have come into deep waters, Where the floods overflow me. 3#Ps. 6:6I am weary with my crying; My throat is dry; #Deut. 28:32; Ps. 119:82, 123; Is. 38:14My eyes fail while I wait for my God. 4Those who #Ps. 35:19; John 15:25hate me without a cause Are more than the hairs of my head; They are mighty who would destroy me, Being my enemies wrongfully; Though I have stolen nothing, I still must restore it. 5O God, You know my foolishness; And my sins are not hidden from You. 6Let not those who wait for You, O Lord God of hosts, be ashamed because of me; Let not those who seek You be confounded because of me, O God of Israel. 7Because for Your sake I have borne reproach; Shame has covered my face. 8#Is. 53:3; Mark 3:21; Luke 8:19; John 7:3–5I have become a stranger to my brothers, And an alien to my mother’s children; 9#John 2:17Because zeal for Your house has eaten me up, #Rom. 15:3And the reproaches of those who reproach You have fallen on me. 10When I wept and chastened my soul with fasting, That became my reproach. 11I also made sackcloth my garment; I became a byword to them. 12Those who sit in the gate speak against me, And I am the song of the #Job 30:9drunkards.
