2I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing: I am come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me.
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.
6Let 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.
9For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.
13But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O LORD, in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy 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 me up, and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me.
16Hear me, O LORD; for thy lovingkindness is good: turn unto me according to the multitude of thy tender mercies.
19Thou hast known my reproach, and my shame, and my dishonour: mine adversaries are all before thee.
20Reproach 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.
22Let their table become a snare before them: and that which should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap.
26For they persecute him whom thou hast smitten; and they talk to the grief of those whom thou hast wounded.
35For God will save Zion, and will build the cities of Judah: that they may dwell there, and have it in possession.
