1 “To the chief musician, by David, to bring to remembrance.” (70:2) O God, [arise] to deliver me; O Lord, make haste to help me.
2 (70:3) 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 (70:4) Let them be turned backward in consequence of their shame, that say, Aha, aha.
4 (70:5) 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 (70:6) But I am poor and needy, O God: come hastily unto me; my help and my deliverer art thou: O Lord, do not delay.
