Psalm 70

God, be pleased to deliver me;

    hurry to help me.

Let those be ashamed and put to confusion who seek to take my life.

    Let those be turned back and ashamed who seek to do me harm.

    Let those who say, "Ha, Ha," turn back because of their shame.

But let all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you.

    Let those who love your salvation constantly say, "God is great!"

 As for me, I am poor and needy;

    God, hurry to me because you are the source of my help and my deliverer.

Don't delay at all!
