Psalm 70:1-3 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

Psalm 70

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, to bring to remembrance.

Make haste, O God, to deliver me;
make haste to help me, O Lord.
Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul:
let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt.
Let them be turned back for a reward of their shame that say, Aha, aha.
