To the director: A song of David to help people remember.
1Please, God, rescue me!
Lord, hurry and help me!
2People are trying to kill me.
Please disappoint them.
Humiliate them!
They want to hurt me.
Make them run away in shame.
3May those who make fun of me
be too embarrassed to speak.
4But may those who come to you
be happy and rejoice.
May those who love being saved by you
always be able to say, “Praise God!”#70:4 Praise God Literally, “God is great” or “May God be magnified.”
5I am only a poor, helpless man.
God, please hurry to me.
You are my helper, the one who can save me.
Lord, don’t be too late!
