1 For the music director; by David; written to get God's attention. O God, please be willing to rescue me! O Lord, hurry and help me!
2 May those who are trying to take my life be embarrassed and ashamed! May those who want to harm me be turned back and ashamed! 3 May those who say, "Aha! Aha!" be driven back and disgraced!
4 May all those who seek you be happy and rejoice in you! May those who love to experience your deliverance say continually, "May God be praised!" 5 I am oppressed and needy! O God, hurry to me! You are my helper and my deliverer! O Lord, do not delay!
