Psalm 70:1-3 The Voice (VOICE)

Psalm 70

For the worship leader. A song of David for remembering.

O God, hurry to save me;
    Eternal One, hurry to my side.
For those who seek to kill me,
    God, may they burn in disgrace and humiliation!
Repulse the attacks; ridicule the efforts
    of those taking pleasure in my pain.
I hear their taunts: “Nah, nah, nah . . . .”
    Let those hecklers fall back upon their brays—ashamed and confused

Psalm 70:1-3 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 70[a]

For the director of music. Of David. A petition.

Hasten, O God, to save me;
    come quickly, Lord, to help me.

May those who want to take my life
    be put to shame and confusion;
may all who desire my ruin
    be turned back in disgrace.
May those who say to me, “Aha! Aha!”
    turn back because of their shame.
