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.
3 I have grown weary with crying; my throat is raw; ♦︎
my eyes have failed from looking so long for my God.
4 Those who hate me without any cause ♦︎
are more than the hairs of my head;
5 Those who would destroy me are mighty; ♦︎
my enemies accuse me falsely:
must I now give back what I never stole?
6 O God, you know my foolishness, ♦︎
and my faults are not hidden from you.
