1 To the chief musician, by David, to bring to remembrance. O God, arise to deliver me; O Lord, make haste to help me.
2 Let those that seek after my life be made ashamed and put to the blush: let those that desire my unhappiness be turned backward and put to confusion.
3 Let them be turned backward in consequence of their shame, that say, Aha, aha.
4 Let all those that seek thee be glad and rejoice in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, God is great.
5 But I am poor and needy, O God: come hastily unto me; my help and my deliverer art thou: O Lord, do not delay.
