Psalm 70

O Lord, Do Not Delay

1 MAKE haste, a O God, to deliver me!
Make haste to help me, O LORD!
2 b Let them be ashamed and confounded
Who seek my life;
Let them be 1 turned back and confused
Who desire my hurt.
3 c Let them be turned back because of their shame,
Who say, 2 "Aha, aha!"

4 Let all those who seek You rejoice and be glad in You;
And let those who love Your salvation say continually,
"Let God be magnified!"
5 d But I am poor and needy;
e Make haste to me, O God!
You are my help and my deliverer;
O LORD, do not delay.
