Default Sealing hairline cracks cement floor

Quick question. Any recommendations on what to use to help seal out water trickles in basement floor through in areas where there are spidery hairline cracks; and also areas where larger holes for plumbing where patched with cement but edges are not completely water tight?

The cracks are not as big a problem as the water level is to high under the floor, it's likely a perimeter drain problem.
