Psalm 69:1-3 Amplified Bible (AMP)

A Cry of Distress and Imprecation on Adversaries.

To the Chief Musician; set to [the tune of] “Lilies.” A Psalm of David.

69 Save me, O God,
For the waters have threatened my life [they have come up to my neck].

I have sunk in deep mire, where there is no foothold;
I have come into deep waters, where a flood overwhelms me.

I am weary with my crying; my throat is parched;
My eyes fail while I wait [with confident expectation] for my God.

Psalm 69[a]

For the director of music. To the tune of “Lilies.” Of David.

Save me, O God,
    for the waters have come up to my neck.
I sink in the miry depths,

I am worn out calling for help;
    my throat is parched.
My eyes fail,
    looking for my God.
