Prayer for Help against Persecutors.

For the music director. A Psalm of David; for a memorial.

70 God, hurry to save me;
Lord, hurry to help me!
May those who seek my [a]life

May those who delight [b]in my harm
Be turned back and dishonored.
May those who say, “Aha, aha!” be [c]turned back
Because of their shame.
