5 My sins, O God, are not hidden from you; you know how foolish I have been. 6 Don't let me bring shame on those who trust in you, Sovereign Lord Almighty! Don't let me bring disgrace to those who worship you, O God of Israel! 7 It is for your sake that I have been insulted and that I am covered with shame. 8 I am like a stranger to my relatives, like a foreigner to my family.
9 My devotion to your Temple burns in me like a fire; the insults which are hurled at you fall on me. 10 I humble myself[a] by fasting, and people insult me; 11 I dress myself in clothes of mourning, and they laugh at me. 12 They talk about me in the streets, and drunkards make up songs about me.
13 But as for me, I will pray to you, Lord; answer me, God, at a time you choose. Answer me because of your great love, because you keep your promise to save. 14 Save me from sinking in the mud; keep me safe from my enemies, safe from the deep water.
Psalm 69:10Some ancient translations humble myself; Hebrew cry.
