Psalm 69:8-13 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

For it is on your account I bear insult,
    that disgrace covers my face.
I have become an outcast to my kindred,
    a stranger to my mother’s children.
10 Because zeal for your house has consumed me,[a]
    I am scorned by those who scorn you.
11 When I humbled my spirit with fasting,
    this led only to scorn.
12 When I clothed myself in sackcloth;
    I became a byword for them.
13 Those who sit in the gate gossip about me;
    drunkards make me the butt of songs.

Footnotes:

  1. 69:10 Zeal for your house has consumed me: the psalmist’s commitment to God’s cause brings only opposition, cf. Jn 2:17. I am scorned by those who scorn you: Rom 15:3 uses the verse as an example of Jesus’ unselfishness.
