To the director. Of David, to bring to remembrance.+ 70 O God, to deliver me,+O Jehovah, to my assistance do make haste.+ 2 May those be ashamed and abashed who are seeking my soul.*+May those turn back and be humiliated who are taking delight in my calamity.+ 3 May those go back by reason of their shame who are saying: “Aha, aha!”+ 4 May those exult and rejoice in you, all of whom are seeking you,+And may they say constantly: “God* be magnified!”—those loving your salvation.+ 5 But I am afflicted and poor.+O God, do act quickly for me.+You are my help and the Provider of escape for me.+O Jehovah, do not be too late.+
