To the Heavenly Worship Leader upon Shoshannim, [A Psalm (sacred song about or to God)] of David [Beloved].
1Save me, O God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered]; for the waters are come in unto [my] soul.
2I sink in deep mire, where [there is] no standing: I am come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me.
3I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried: mine eyes fail while I wait for my God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered].
4They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of mine head: they that would destroy me, [being] mine enemies wrongfully, are mighty: then I restored [that] which I took not away.
5O God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], youi know my foolishness; and my sins are not hid from youi.
6Let not them that wait on youi, O Lord-Adonai (The Father) [Greatest Above All Things] GOD-Yehōvih [THE FATHER] Tz’va’ot [of the Heavenly Armies], be ashamed for my sake: let not those that seek youi be confounded for my sake, O God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel of God].
7Because for youri sake I have borne reproach (disgrace; shame); shame has covered my face.
8I am become a stranger unto my brethren, and an alien unto my mother’s children.
9For the zeal of youri house has eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached youi are fallen upon me.
10When I wept, [and chastened] my soul with fasting, that was to my reproach (disgrace; shame).
11I made sackcloth also my garment; and I became a proverb to them.
12They that sit in the gate speak against me; and I [was] the song of the drunkards.
13But as for me, my prayer [is] unto youi, O Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate], [in] an acceptable time: O God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], in the multitude of youri mercy hear me, in the tof youri salvation.
14Deliver 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.
15Let not the waterflood overflow me, neither let the deep swallow (to approve, commend, accept) me up, and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me.
16Hear me, O Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate]; for youri lovingkindness [is] good: turn unto me according to the multitude of youri tender mercies.
17And hide not youri face from youri servant; for I am in trouble: hear me speedily.
18Draw near unto my soul, [and] redeem it: deliver me because of mine enemies.
19youi have known my reproach (disgrace; shame), and my shame, and my dishonour: mine adversaries [are] all before youi.
20Reproach (disgrace; shame) has 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.
21They gave me also gall (something bitter or poisonous) for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.
22Let their table become a snare before them: and [that which should have been] for [their] welfare, [let it become] a trap.
23Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not; and make their loins (thigh and groin area; often used for the reproductive organs) continually to shake.
24Pour out youri indignation upon them, and let youri wrathful anger take hold of them.
25Let their habitation be desolate; [and] let none dwell in their tents.
26For they persecute [him] whom youi have smitten; and they talk to the grief of those whom youi have wounded.
27Add iniquity unto their iniquity: and let them not come into youri righteousness.
28Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous.
29But I [am] poor and sorrowful: let youri salvation, O God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], set me up on high.
30I will praise the name of God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.
31 [This] also shall please the Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] better than an ox [or] bullock that has horns and hoofs.
32The humble shall see [this, and] be glad: and your heart shall live that seek God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered].
33For the Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] hears the poor, and despises not his prisoners.
34Let the heaven and earth praise him, the seas, and everything that moves therein.
35For God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] will save Tziyon [Parched Place], and will build the cities of Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised]: that they may dwell there, and have it in possession.
36The seed also of his servants shall inherit it: and they that love his name shall dwell therein.
