69:19 Thou — Thou hast known my reproach, And my shame, and my blushing, Before Thee [are] all mine adversaries.
69:20 Reproach hath broken my heart, and I am sick, And I look for a bemoaner, and there is none, And for comforters, and I have found none.
69:21 And they give for my food gall, And for my thirst cause me to drink vinegar.
69:22 Their table before them is for a snare, And for a recompence — for a trap.
69:23 Darkened are their eyes from seeing, And their loins continually shake Thou.
69:24 Pour upon them Thine indignation, And the fierceness of Thine anger doth seize them.
69:25 Their tower is desolated, In their tents there is no dweller.
69:26 For they have pursued him Thou hast smitten, And recount of the pain of Thy pierced ones.
69:27 Give punishment for their iniquity, And they enter not into Thy righteousness.
69:28 They are blotted out of the book of life, And with the righteous are not written.
69:29 And I [am] afflicted and pained, Thy salvation, O God, doth set me on high.
69:30 I praise the name of God with a song, And I magnify Him with thanksgiving,
69:31 And it is better to Jehovah than an ox, A bullock — horned — hoofed.
69:32 The humble have seen — they rejoice, Ye who seek God — and your heart liveth.
69:33 For Jehovah hearkeneth unto the needy, And His bound ones He hath not despised.
69:34 The heavens and earth do praise Him, Seas, and every moving thing in them.
69:35 For God doth save Zion, And doth build the cities of Judah, And they have dwelt there, and possess it.
69:36 And the seed of His servants inherit it, And those loving His name dwell in it!
70:1 To the Overseer, by David. — `To cause to remember.’ O God, to deliver me, O Jehovah, for my help, haste.
70:2 Let them be ashamed and confounded Who are seeking my soul, Let them be turned backward and blush Who are desiring my evil.
70:3 Let them turn back because of their shame, Who are saying, `Aha, aha.’
70:4 Let all those seeking Thee joy and be glad in Thee, And let those loving Thy salvation Say continually, `God is magnified.’
70:5 And I [am] poor and needy, O God, haste to me, My help and my deliverer [art] Thou, O Jehovah, tarry Thou not!
71:1 In Thee, O Jehovah, I have trusted, Let me not be ashamed to the age.
71:2 In Thy righteousness Thou dost deliver me, And dost cause me to escape, Incline unto me Thine ear, and save me.
71:3 Be to me for a rock — a habitation, To go in continually, Thou hast given command to save me, For my rock and my bulwark [art] Thou.
