22 (A)Let their own (B)table before them become a snare;
    (C)and when they are at peace, let it become a trap.[a]
23 (D)Let their eyes be darkened, so that they cannot see,
    (E)and make their loins tremble continually.
24 Pour out your indignation upon them,
    and let your burning anger overtake them.
25 (F)May their camp be a desolation;
    let no one dwell in their tents.
26 For they (G)persecute him whom (H)you have struck down,
    and they recount the pain of (I)those you have wounded.
27 (J)Add to them punishment upon punishment;
    may they have no acquittal from you.[b]
28 Let them be (K)blotted out of the book of the living;
    let them not be (L)enrolled among the righteous.

29 But I am afflicted and in pain;
    let your salvation, O God, (M)set me on high!

30 I will (N)praise the name of God with a song;
    I will (O)magnify him with (P)thanksgiving.
31 This will (Q)please the Lord more than an ox
    or a bull (R)with horns and hoofs.
32 When (S)the humble see it they will be glad;
    you who seek God, (T)let your hearts revive.
33 For the Lord hears the needy
    and (U)does not despise his own people who are prisoners.

34 Let (V)heaven and earth praise him,
    the seas and everything that moves in them.
35 For (W)God will save Zion
    and build up the cities of Judah,
and people shall dwell there and possess it;
36     (X)the offspring of his servants shall inherit it,
    and those who love his name shall dwell in it.

  1. Psalm 69:22 Hebrew; a slight revocalization yields (compare Septuagint, Syriac, Jerome) a snare, and retribution and a trap
  2. Psalm 69:27 Hebrew may they not come into your righteousness
