Psalm 70

A Prayer for Deliverance
(Psalm 40.13-17)
To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, to bring to remembrance.
1 Make haste, O God, to deliver me;
make haste to help me, O Lord.
2Let them be ashamed and confounded
that seek after my soul:
let them be turned backward, and put to confusion,
that desire my hurt.
3Let them be turned back for a reward of their shame
that say, Aha, aha.
4Let all those that seek thee
rejoice and be glad in thee:
and let such as love thy salvation
say continually, Let God be magnified.
5But I am poor and needy;
make haste unto me, O God:
thou art my help and my deliverer;
O Lord, make no tarrying.
