1 Save me, O God, ♦︎
for the waters have come up, even to my neck.
2 I sink in deep mire where there is no foothold; ♦︎
I have come into deep waters and the flood sweeps over me.
31 As for me, I am poor and in misery; ♦︎
your saving help, O God, will lift me up.
32 I will praise the name of God with a song; ♦︎
I will proclaim his greatness with thanksgiving.
33 This will please the Lord more than an offering of oxen, ♦︎
more than bulls with horns and hooves.
34 The humble shall see and be glad; ♦︎
you who seek God, your heart shall live.
35 For the Lord listens to the needy, ♦︎
and his own who are imprisoned he does not despise.
36 Let the heavens and the earth praise him, ♦︎
the seas and all that moves in them;
37 For God will save Zion and rebuild the cities of Judah; ♦︎
they shall live there and have it in possession.
38 The children of his servants shall inherit it, ♦︎
and they that love his name shall dwell therein.
