Psalm 70
New American Bible Revised Edition

Psalm 70*

Prayer for Divine Help

1For the leader; of David. For remembrance.

2Graciously rescue me, God!a

Come quickly to help me, Lord!b

3Let those who seek my life

be confused and put to shame.c

Let those who desire my ruin

turn back in disgrace.

4Let those who say “Aha!”d

turn back in their shame.

5But may all who seek you

rejoice and be glad in you,

Those who long for your help

always say, “God be glorified!”e

6I am miserable and poor.

God, come to me quickly!

You are my help and deliverer.

Lord, do not delay!
