Come Quickly to Me
(Psalm 70:1–5)

1A Psalme of Dauid. O God I call vpon thee, haste thee vnto me: geue eare vnto my voyce whylest I crye vnto thee.

2Let my prayer be directed before thy face as an incense: let the liftyng vp of mine handes be an euenyng sacrifice.

3Set a watch O God before my mouth: and kepe the doore of my lippes.

4Inclyne not myne heart to any euyll thyng, wherby I myght commit any vngodly act with men that be workers of iniquitie: and let me not eate of their delicates.

5I wishe that the ryghteous woulde smite me and reproue me: for it is louing kyndnesse. (141:6) But let not pretious baulmes breake mine head: for as yet euen my prayer is agaynst their wickednesse.

6(141:7) Let their iudges be thrust downe headlong from a rocke: then they wyll heare my wordes, for they be sweete.

7(141:8) Our bones lye scattered vpon the graues mouth: lyke as when one breaketh and heweth wood vpon the earth.

8(141:9) For mine eyes loke vnto thee O God the Lorde: in thee is my trust, cast not my soule out of me.

9(141:10) Kepe me from the snare which they haue layde foorth for me: and from the trappes of them that be workers of iniquitie.

10(141:11) Let the vngodly fall together into their owne nettes: but let me in the meane season alwayes escape them.
