A psalm written by David for the choir director, asking God to help David
1 God, please save me!
Yahweh, come quickly to help me!
2 Humble those who are happy about my troubles/difficulties, and cause them to be disgraced/ashamed.
Chase away those who are trying to kill me.
3 I hope/desire that you will cause them to become dismayed and ashamed
because you have defeated them.
4 But I hope/desire that all those who go to worship you will be very joyful [DOU].
I want those who love you because you saved them to shout repeatedly [HYP],
“God is great!”
5 As for me, I am poor and needy [DOU];
so God, come quickly to help me!
Yahweh, you are the one who saves and helps me,
so please come quickly!
