Psalm 70

For the music leader. Of David. For the memorial offering.

1 Hurry, God, to deliver me; hurry, LORD, to help me!
2 Let those who seek my life be ashamed and humiliated! Let them fall back and be disgraced— those people who delight in my downfall!
3 Let those who say, "Aha! Aha!" stop because of their shameful behavior.
4 But let all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you, and let those who love your saving help say again and again: "God is great!"
5 But me? I'm poor and needy. Hurry to me, God! You are my helper and my deliverer. Oh, LORD, don't delay!
