New International Version (1984 Edition)

Psalms 70

For the director of music. Of David. A petition.

1 Hasten, O God, to save me;
     O Lord, come quickly to help me.
2 May those who seek my life
     be put to shame and confusion;
may all who desire my ruin
     be turned back in disgrace.
3 May those who say to me, "Aha! Aha!"
     turn back because of their shame.
4 But may all who seek you
     rejoice and be glad in you;
may those who love your salvation always say,
     "Let God be exalted!"
5 Yet I am poor and needy; come quickly to me, O God. You are my help and my deliverer; O LORD, do not delay.
