For the music director; according to the tune of “Lilies;” by David.
69:1 Deliver me, O God,
for the water has reached my neck.
69:2 I sink into the deep mire
where there is no solid ground;
I am in deep water,
and the current overpowers me.
69:13 O Lord, may you hear my prayer and be favorably disposed to me!
O God, because of your great loyal love,
answer me with your faithful deliverance!
69:14 Rescue me from the mud! Don’t let me sink!
Deliver me from those who hate me,
from the deep water!
69:15 Don’t let the current overpower me!
Don’t let the deep swallow me up!
Don’t let the pit devour me!
