For the music leader. Of David. For the memorial offering.
1Hurry, God, to deliver me;
hurry, LORD, to help me!
2Let those who seek my life be ashamed and humiliated!
Let them fall back and be disgraced—
those people who delight in my downfall!
3Let those who say, "Aha! Aha!"
stop because of their shameful behavior.
4But let all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you,
and let those who love your saving help say again and again:
"God is great!"
5But me? I’m poor and needy.
Hurry to me, God!
You are my helper and my deliverer.
Oh, LORD, don’t delay!
