Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink: Let me be delivered from them that hate me, and
out of the deep waters. Let not the waterflood overflow me, Neither let the deep swallow me up, And let not the pit shut her mouth upon me. Hear me, O Lord; for thy lovingkindness is good: Turn unto me according to the multitude of thy ten
