GOD’S WORD Translation
For the choir director; according to shoshannim; by David.
1 Save me, O God!
The water is already up to my neck!
2 I am sinking in deep mud.
There is nothing to stand on.
I am in deep water.
A flood is sweeping me away.
3 I am exhausted from crying for help.
My throat is hoarse.
My eyes are strained from looking for my God.
