Psalms 70

Psalm 70

A Call for Deliverance

For the choir director. Of David. To bring remembrance.

1God, hurry to rescue me.

Lord, hurry to help me!

2Let those who seek to kill me

be disgraced and confounded;

let those who wish me harm

be turned back and humiliated.

3Let those who say, “Aha, aha!”

retreat because of their shame.

4Let all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you;

let those who love your salvation

continually say, “God is great!”

5I am oppressed and needy;

hurry to me, God.

You are my help and my deliverer;

Lord, do not delay.
