Psalm 70

1    O God, make speed to save me;  

O Lord, make haste to help me.

2    Let those who seek my life

    be put to shame and confusion;  

let them be turned back and disgraced

    who wish me evil.

3  Let those who mock and deride me  

turn back because of their shame.

4    But let all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you;  

let those who love your salvation say always, ‘Great is the Lord!’

5    As for me, I am poor and needy;  

come to me quickly, O God.

6    You are my help and my deliverer;  

O Lord, do not delay.
