O Yahweh, Do Not Delay

For the choir director. Of David. To bring to remembrance.

70 (A)O God, hasten to deliver me;
O Yahweh, hasten to my help!
(B)Let those be ashamed and humiliated
Who seek my [a]life;
Let those be turned back and dishonored
Who delight in [b]evil against me.
(C)Let those [c]turn back because of their shame
Who say, “Aha, aha!”

Let those be joyful and glad in You
All who seek You
And let them say continually,
“Let God be magnified,”
Those who love Your salvation.
But (D)I am afflicted and needy;
(E)Hasten to me, O God!
You are my help and my protector;
O Yahweh, do not delay.
