To the director: A song of David to help people remember.
1 Please, God, rescue me!
LORD, hurry and help me!
2 People are trying to kill me.
Please disappoint them.
They want to hurt me.
Make them run away in shame.
3 May those who make fun of me
be too embarrassed to speak.
4 But 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!”* Praise God Literally, “God is great” or “May God be magnified.”
5 I 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!
*70:4 Praise God Literally, “God is great” or “May God be magnified.”
