Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
1 To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David, for the memorial offering. Be pleased, O God, to deliver me! O LORD, make haste to help me! 1 Hasten, O God, to save me; O LORD, come quickly to help me.
2 Let them be put to shame and confusion who seek my life! Let them be turned back and brought to dishonor who desire my hurt! 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 Let them be appalled because of their shame who say, "Aha, Aha!" 3 May those who say to me, "Aha! Aha!" turn back because of their shame.
4 May all who seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee! May those who love thy salvation say evermore, "God is great!" 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 am poor and needy; hasten to me, O God! Thou art my help and my deliverer; O LORD, do not tarry! 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.
