Salmos 69

Al director musical. Sígase la tonada de «Los lirios». De David.

1Sálvame, Dios mío,
    que las aguas ya me llegan al cuello.
Me estoy hundiendo en una ciénaga profunda,
    y no tengo dónde apoyar el pie.
Estoy en medio de profundas aguas,
    y me arrastra la corriente.
Cansado estoy de pedir ayuda;
    tengo reseca la garganta.
Mis ojos languidecen,
    esperando la ayuda de mi Dios.
Más que los cabellos de mi cabeza
    son los que me odian sin motivo;
muchos son sin motivo los enemigos
    que se han propuesto destruirme.
    ¿Cómo voy a devolver lo que no he robado?

Oh Dios, tú sabes lo insensato que he sido;
    no te puedo esconder mis transgresiones.
Señor Soberano, Todopoderoso,
    que no sean avergonzados por mi culpa
    los que en ti esperan;
oh Dios de Israel,
    que no sean humillados por mi culpa
    los que te buscan.
Por ti yo he sufrido insultos;
    mi rostro se ha cubierto de ignominia.
Soy como un extraño para mis hermanos;
    soy un extranjero para los hijos de mi madre.
El celo por tu casa me consume;
    sobre mí han recaído
    los insultos de tus detractores.
10 Cuando lloro y ayuno,
    tengo que soportar sus ofensas;
11 cuando me visto de luto,
    soy objeto de burlas.
12 Los que se sientan a la puerta murmuran contra mí;
    los borrachos me dedican parodias.

13 Pero yo, Señor, te imploro
    en el tiempo de tu buena voluntad.
Por tu gran amor, oh Dios, respóndeme;
    por tu fidelidad, sálvame.
14 Sácame del fango;
    no permitas que me hunda.
Líbrame de los que me odian,
    y de las aguas profundas.
15 No dejes que me arrastre la corriente;
    no permitas que me trague el abismo,
    ni que el foso cierre sus fauces sobre mí.
16 Respóndeme, Señor, por tu bondad y tu amor;
    por tu gran compasión, vuélvete a mí.
17 No escondas tu rostro de este siervo tuyo;
    respóndeme pronto, que estoy angustiado.
18 Ven a mi lado, y rescátame;
    redímeme, a causa de mis enemigos.

19 Tú bien sabes cómo me insultan,
    me avergüenzan y denigran;
    sabes quiénes son mis adversarios.
20 Los insultos me han destrozado el corazón;
    para mí ya no hay remedio.
Busqué compasión, y no la hubo;
    busqué consuelo, y no lo hallé.
21 En mi comida pusieron hiel;
    para calmar mi sed me dieron vinagre.

22 Que se conviertan en trampa sus banquetes,
    y su prosperidad en lazo.
23 Que se les nublen los ojos, para que no vean;
    y que sus fuerzas flaqueen para siempre.
24 Descarga tu furia sobre ellos;
    que tu ardiente ira los alcance.
25 Quédense desiertos sus campamentos,
    y deshabitadas sus tiendas de campaña.
26 Pues al que has afligido lo persiguen,
    y se burlan del dolor del que has herido.
27 Añade a sus pecados más pecados;
    no los hagas partícipes de tu salvación.
28 Que sean borrados del libro de la vida;
    que no queden inscritos con los justos.

29 Y a mí, que estoy pobre y dolorido,
    que me proteja, oh Dios, tu salvación.
30 Con cánticos alabaré el nombre de Dios;
    con acción de gracias lo exaltaré.
31 Esa ofrenda agradará más al Señor
    que la de un toro o un novillo
    con sus cuernos y pezuñas.
32 Los pobres verán esto y se alegrarán;
    ¡animaos vosotros, los que buscáis a Dios!
33 Porque el Señor oye a los necesitados,
    y no desdeña a su pueblo cautivo.

34 Que lo alaben los cielos y la tierra,
    los mares y todo lo que se mueve en ellos,
35 porque Dios salvará a Sión
    y reconstruirá las ciudades de Judá.
Allí se establecerá el pueblo
    y tomará posesión de la tierra.
36 La heredarán los hijos de sus siervos;
    la habitarán los que aman al Señor.

Amplified Bible

Psalm 69

A Cry of Distress and Imprecation on Adversaries.

To the Chief Musician; set to [the tune of] “Lilies.” A Psalm of David.

1Save me, O God,
For the waters have threatened my life [they have come up to my neck].

I have sunk in deep mire, where there is no foothold;
I have come into deep waters, where a flood overwhelms me.

I am weary with my crying; my throat is parched;
My eyes fail while I wait [with confident expectation] for my God.

Those who hate me without cause are more than the hairs of my head;
Those who would destroy me are powerful, being my enemies wrongfully;
I am forced to restore what I did not steal.


O God, You know my folly;
My wrongs are not hidden from You.

Do not let those who wait [confidently] for You be [a]ashamed through me, O Lord [b]God of hosts;
Do not let those who seek You [as necessary for life itself] be dishonored through me, O God of Israel,

Because for Your sake I have borne reproach;
Confusion and dishonor have covered my face.

I have become estranged from my brothers
And an alien to my mother’s sons.

For zeal for Your house has consumed me,
And the [mocking] insults of those who insult You have fallen on me.
10 
When I wept and humbled myself with fasting,
It became my reproach.
11 
When I made sackcloth my clothing [as one in mourning],
I became a byword [a mere object of scorn] to them.
12 
They who sit in the [city’s] gate talk about me and mock me,
And I am the song of the drunkards.

13 
But as for me, my prayer is to You, O Lord, at an acceptable and opportune time;
O God, in the greatness of Your favor and in the abundance of Your lovingkindness,
Answer me with truth [that is, the faithfulness of Your salvation].
14 
Rescue me from the mire and do not let me sink;
Let me be rescued from those who hate me and from the deep waters.
15 
Do not let the floodwater overwhelm me,
Nor the deep waters swallow me up,
Nor the pit [of Sheol] shut its mouth over me.

16 
Answer me, O Lord, for Your lovingkindness is sweet and good and comforting;
According to the greatness of Your compassion, turn to me.
17 
Do not hide Your face from Your servant,
For I am in distress; answer me quickly.
18 
Draw near to my soul and redeem it;
Ransom me because of my enemies [so that they do not delight in my distress].
19 
You know my reproach and my shame and my dishonor [how I am insulted];
My adversaries are all before You [each one fully known].

20 
Reproach and insults have broken my heart and I am so sick.
I looked for sympathy, but there was none,
And for comforters, but I found none.
21 
They (self-righteous hypocrites) also gave me gall [poisonous and bitter] for my food,
And for my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.

22 
May their table [with all its abundance and luxury] become a snare [to them];
And when they are in peace [secure at their sacrificial feasts], may it become a trap.
23 
May their eyes be dimmed so that they cannot see,
And make their loins shake continually [in terror and weakness].
24 
Pour out Your indignation on them,
And let [the fierceness of] Your burning anger overtake them.
25 
May their encampment be desolate;
May no one dwell in their tents.
26 
For they have persecuted him whom You have struck,
And they tell of the pain of those whom You have pierced and wounded.
27 
Add [unforgiven] iniquity to their iniquity [in Your book],
And may they not come into Your [c]righteousness.
28 
May they be blotted out of the book of life [and their lives come to an end]
And may they not be recorded with the righteous (those in right standing with God).

29 
But I am sorrowful and in pain;
May Your salvation, O God, set me [securely] on high.
30 
I will praise the name of God with song
And magnify Him with thanksgiving.
31 
And it will please the Lord better than an ox
Or a young bull with horns and hoofs.
32 
The humble have seen it and are glad;
You who seek God [requiring Him as your greatest need], let your heart revive and live.
33 
For the Lord hears the needy
And does not despise His who are prisoners.

34 
Let heaven and earth praise Him,
The seas and everything that moves in them.
35 
For God will save Zion and rebuild the cities of Judah,
That His servants may remain there and possess it.
36 
The descendants of His servants will inherit it,
And those who love His name will dwell in it.
