Psalm 70[a]

For the choir director; by David; to be kept in mind.

Come quickly to rescue me, O Elohim!
    Come quickly to help me, O Yahweh!
Let those who seek my life
    be confused and put to shame.
    Let those who want my downfall
    be turned back and disgraced.
Let those who say, “Aha! Aha!”
    be turned back because of their own shame.
Let all who seek you rejoice and be glad because of you.
    Let those who love your salvation continually say,
    Elohim is great!”

But I am oppressed and needy.
    O Elohim, come to me quickly.
    You are my help and my savior.
        O Yahweh, do not delay!
