Psalm 70



A Call For Deliverance

1 O God, hasten to deliver me; O LORD, hasten to my help!

1 {To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, to bring to remembrance.} Make haste, O God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O LORD.

1 God, come to my rescue. LORD, hurry to help me.

1 Make haste, O God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O Lord!

2 Let those be ashamed and humiliated Who seek my life; Let those be turned back and dishonored Who delight in my hurt.

2 Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt.

2 May those who seek to kill me be publicly humiliated. May those who take pleasure in my harm be turned back in humiliation.

2 Let them be put to shame and confounded that seek and demand my life; let them be turned backward and brought to confusion and dishonor who desire and delight in my hurt.

3 Let those be turned back because of their shame Who say, "Aha, aha!"

3 Let them be turned back for a reward of their shame that say, Aha, aha.

3 May those who say "Aha! Aha!" be turned back because of their shameful deeds.

3 Let them be turned back and appalled because of their shame and disgrace who say, Aha, aha!

4 Let all who seek You rejoice and be glad in You; And let those who love Your salvation say continually, "Let God be magnified."

4 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.

4 Let those who seek you greatly rejoice in you. Let those who love your deliverance say, "May God be continuously exalted."

4 May all those who seek, inquire of and for You, and require You [as their vital need] rejoice and be glad in You; and may those who love Your salvation say continually, Let God be magnified!

5 But I am afflicted and needy; Hasten to me, O God! You are my help and my deliverer; O LORD, do not delay.

5 But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O LORD, make no tarrying.

5 As for me, I am poor and needy. God, come quickly to me. You are my helper and my deliverer. LORD, please do not delay.

5 But I am poor and needy; hasten to me, O God! You are my Help and my Deliverer; O Lord, do not tarry!
