The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
1 God! Please hurry to my rescue! God, come quickly to my side! 1 Hasten, O God, to save me; O LORD, come quickly to help me.
2 Those who are out to get me - let them fall all over themselves. Those who relish my downfall - send them down a blind alley. 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 Give them a taste of their own medicine, those gossips off clucking their tongues. 3 May those who say to me, "Aha! Aha!" turn back because of their shame.
4 Let those on the hunt for you sing and celebrate. Let all who love your saving way say over and over, "God is mighty!" 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 But I've lost it. I'm wasted. God - quickly, quickly! Quick to my side, quick to my rescue! God, don't lose a minute. 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.
