Psalm 68 : 8-10, 21bcd-22, 31 and 33-34
Since I am held in contempt for Your sake, and shame has covered My face. I have become a stranger to My kindred, an alien to My mother’s sons. Zeal for Your house consumes Me as fire and those who insult You insult Me as well.
I looked for sympathy and there was none, for comforters and there was no one. They gave me poison for food and vinegar to drink.
I will praise the Name of God in song; I will glorify Him with thanksgiving. Let the lowly witness this and be glad. You who seek God, may your hearts be revived. For the Lord hears the needy and does not despise those in captivity.
