Psalms 70:1-5

Psalm 70

For the music director; by David; written to get God’s attention.

70:1 O God, please be willing to rescue me!

O Lord, hurry and help me!

70:2 May those who are trying to take my life

be embarrassed and ashamed!

May those who want to harm me

be turned back and ashamed!

70:3 May those who say, “Aha! Aha!”

be driven back and disgraced!

70:4 May all those who seek you be happy and rejoice in you!

May those who love to experience your deliverance say continually,

“May God be praised!”

70:5 I am oppressed and needy!

O God, hurry to me!

You are my helper and my deliverer!

O Lord, do not delay!
