1 To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David, for the memorial offering.
2 Be pleased, O God, to deliver me! O LORD, make haste to help me!
3 Let them be put to shame and confusion who seek my life! Let them be turned back and brought to dishonor who desire my hurt!
4 Let them be appalled because of their shame who say, "Aha, Aha!"
5 May all who seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee! May those who love thy salvation say evermore, "God is great!" [ (Psalms 70:6) But I am poor and needy; hasten to me, O God! Thou art my help and my deliverer; O LORD, do not tarry! ]
