Psalm 70 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

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
Be put to shame and humiliated;
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.

May all who seek You rejoice and be glad in You;
And may those who love Your salvation say continually,
“May God be exalted!”
But I am afflicted and needy;
Hurry to me, God!
You are my help and my savior;
Lord, do not delay.

Psalm 70 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.
But may all who seek you
    rejoice and be glad in you;
may those who long for your saving help always say,
    “The Lord is great!”

But as for me, I am poor and needy;
    come quickly to me, O God.
You are my help and my deliverer;
    Lord, do not delay.
