69:6 Don`t let those who wait for you be put to shame through me, Lord Yahweh of Hosts. Don`t let those who seek you be brought to dishonor through me, God of Israel.
69:7 Because for your sake, I have borne reproach. Shame has covered my face.
69:8 I have become a stranger to my brothers, An alien to my mother`s children.
69:9 For the zeal of your house consumes me. The reproaches of those who reproach you have fallen on me.
69:10 When I wept and I fasted, That was to my reproach.

69:12 Those who sit in the gate talk about me. I am the song of the drunkards.
69:14 Deliver me out of the mire, and don`t let me sink. Let me be delivered from those who hate me, and out of the deep waters.
69:15 Don`t let the flood waters overwhelm me, Neither let the deep swallow me up. Don`t let the pit shut its mouth on me.

69:25 Let their habitation be desolate. Let no one dwell in their tents.
69:26 For they persecute him whom you have wounded. They tell of the sorrow of those whom you have hurt.
69:27 Charge them with crime upon crime. Don`t let them come into your righteousness.
69:29 But I am in pain and distress. Let your salvation, God, protect me.
69:30 I will praise the name of God with a song, And will magnify him with thanksgiving.
69:31 It will please Yahweh better than an ox, Or a bull that has horns and hoofs.
69:33 For Yahweh hears the needy, And doesn`t despise his captive people.
69:34 Let heaven and earth praise him; The seas, and everything that moves therein!
69:35 For God will save Zion, and build the cities of Judah. They shall settle there, and own it.
69:36 The children also of his servants shall inherit it. Those who love his name shall dwell therein. Psalm 70 For the Chief Musician. By David. A reminder.
