Chapter 70


1 For the leader; of David. For remembrance.


Graciously rescue me, God! Come quickly to help me, LORD!


Confound and put to shame those who seek my life. Turn back in disgrace those who desire my ruin.


Let those who say "Aha!" turn back in their shame.


But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you. May those who long for your help always say, "God be glorified!"


Here I am, afflicted and poor. God, come quickly! You are my help and deliverer. LORD, do not delay!



1 [Psalm 70] A lament of a poor and afflicted person ( Psalm 70:6) who has no resource except God, and who cries out to be saved from the enemy. The psalm is almost identical to Psalm 40:14-17.
