Psalm 70
New American Standard Bible►► 

Prayer for Help against Persecutors.

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

1God, hurry to save me;

LORD, hurry to help me!

2May those who seek my [a]life

Be put to shame and humiliated;

May those who delight [b]in my harm

Be turned back and dishonored.

3May those who say, “Aha, aha!” be [c]turned back

Because of their shame.

4May all who seek You rejoice and be glad in You;

And may those who love Your salvation say continually,

“May God be exalted!”

5But I am afflicted and needy;

Hurry to me, God!

You are my help and my savior;

LORD, do not delay.

[a] 2 Or soul
[b] 2 Or to injure me
[c] 3 Some mss appalled
