Prayer for Help against Persecutors.
For the choir director.
of David; for a memorial.
to deliver me;
, hasten to my help!
Let those be ashamed and humiliated
Who seek my life;
Let those be turned back and dishonored
Who delight in my hurt.
Let those be turned back because of their shame
Who say, Aha, aha!
Let all who seek You rejoice and be glad in You;
And let those who love Your salvation say continually,
Let God be magnified.
But I am afflicted and needy;
Hasten to me, O God!
You are my help and my deliverer;
, do not delay.
