Psalm 70:1-3 English Standard Version Anglicised (ESVUK)

O Lord, Do Not Delay

To the choirmaster. Of David, for the memorial offering.

70 Make haste, O God, to deliver me!
    O Lord, make haste to help me!
Let them be put to shame and confusion
    who seek my life!
Let them be turned back and brought to dishonour
    who delight in my hurt!
Let them turn back because of their shame
    who say, “Aha, Aha!”

Hasten, O God, to save me;
