Psalm 70

A Prayer for Help

(Psalm 40.13-17)

1Save me, O God!

Lord, help me now!

2May those who try to kill me

be defeated and confused.

May those who are happy because of my troubles

be turned back and disgraced.

3May those who make fun of me

be dismayed by their defeat.

4May all who come to you

be glad and joyful.

May all who are thankful for your salvation

always say, “How great is God!”

5I am weak and poor;

come to me quickly, O God.

You are my savior and my Lord

hurry to my aid!
