Psalm 70
NASB 1977►► 
Prayer for Help against Persecutors.

For the choir director. A Psalm of David; for a memorial.

     1O God, hasten to deliver me;
            O LORD, hasten to my help!

     2Let those be ashamed and humiliated
            Who seek my life;
            Let those be turned back and dishonored
            Who delight in my hurt.

     3Let those be turned back because of their shame
            Who say, “Aha, aha!”

     4Let all who seek Thee rejoice and be glad in Thee;
            And let those who love Thy salvation say continually,
            “Let God be magnified.”

     5But I am afflicted and needy;
            Hasten to me, O God!
            Thou art my help and my deliverer;
            O LORD, do not delay.
