for zeal for your house consumes me, and the insults of those who insult you fall on me.
For zeal for Your house has consumed me, And the reproaches of those who reproach You have fallen on me.
Passion for your house burns within me, so those who insult you are also insulting me.
I love you more than I can say. Because I'm madly in love with you, They blame me for everything they dislike about you.
I am on fire with passion for your house; and the hard things which are said about you have come on me.
It is zeal for your house that has consumed me; the insults of those who insult you have fallen on me.
Because zeal for Your house has eaten me up, And the reproaches of those who reproach You have fallen on me.
