A Prayer for Deliverance from Enemies

1 O God, [make haste] to deliver me. O Yahweh, make haste to help me.
2 Let them be ashamed and abashed who seek my life. Let them be repulsed and humiliated [who] desire my harm.
3 let them turn back because of their shame, those who say, "Aha! Aha!"
4 Let them rejoice and be glad in you, all those who seek you. Let them say continually, "God is great!" [those] who love your salvation.
5 But I [am] poor and needy; O God hasten to me. You [are] my help and my deliverer. O Yahweh, do not delay.
