It is for your sake alone
that I am insulted
    and blush with shame.
I am like a stranger
    to my relatives
and like a foreigner
    to my own family.

(A) My love for your house
    burns in me like a fire,

    they insulted me as well.
10 I cried and went without food,[a]
    but they still insulted me.

  1. 69.10 went without food: See the note at 35.13.

16 Answer me, Lord!
    You are kind and good.
Pay attention to me!
    You are truly merciful.
17 Don't turn away from me.
I am your servant,
    and I am in trouble.
Please hurry and help!
18 Come and save me
    from my enemies.
