Psalm 70 World English Bible (WEB)

For the Chief Musician. By David. A reminder.

70 Hurry, God, to deliver me.
    Come quickly to help me, Yahweh.
Let them be disappointed and confounded who seek my soul.
    Let those who desire my ruin be turned back in disgrace.
Let them be turned because of their shame
    Who say, “Aha! Aha!”
Let all those who seek you rejoice and be glad in you.
    Let those who love your salvation continually say,
    “Let God be exalted!”
But I am poor and needy.
    Come to me quickly, God.
You are my help and my deliverer.
    Yahweh, don’t delay.

Psalm 70 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 70[a]

For the director of music. Of David. A petition.

Hasten, O God, to save me;
    come quickly, Lord, to help me.

May those who want to take my life
    be put to shame and confusion;
may all who desire my ruin
    be turned back in disgrace.
May those who say to me, “Aha! Aha!”
    turn back because of their shame.
But may all who seek you
    rejoice and be glad in you;
may those who long for your saving help always say,
    “The Lord is great!”

But as for me, I am poor and needy;
    come quickly to me, O God.
You are my help and my deliverer;
    Lord, do not delay.
