Psalm 70

For the director of music. A psalm of Asaph. A song to be played on stringed instruments.

For the director of music. For Jeduthun. A psalm of Asaph.

1 God, hurry and save me. Lord, come quickly and help me.
2 Let those who are trying to kill me be put to shame. Let them not be honored. Let all those who want to destroy me be turned back in shame.
3 Some people make fun of me. Let them be turned back when their plans fail.
4 But let all those who look to you be joyful and glad because of what you have done. Let those who love you because you save them always say, "May God be honored!"
5 But I am poor and needy. God, come quickly to me. You are the One who helps me and saves me. Lord, please don't wait any longer.
