Psalms 70:1-5

Psalm 70In Hebrew texts 70:1-5 is numbered 70:2-6.

For the director of music. Of David. A petition.

Hasten, O God, to save me;

come quickly, Lord, to help me.

May those who want to take my life

be put to shame and confusion;

may all who desire my ruin

be turned back in disgrace.

May those who say to me, “Aha! Aha!”

turn back because of their shame.

But may all who seek you

rejoice and be glad in you;

may those who long for your saving help always say,

“The Lord is great!”

But as for me, I am poor and needy;

come quickly to me, O God.

You are my help and my deliverer;

Lord, do not delay.
