NEW WORLD TRANSLATION OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURES (2013 REVISION)

Psalms 70:1-5

OUTLINE OF CONTENTS

  • Urgent help requested

    • “Act quickly in my behalf” (5)

To the director. Of David, to serve as a reminder.* 70  O God, save me; O Jehovah, hurry to help me.+   May those seeking to take my life* Be put to shame and disgraced. May those who delight in my calamity Retreat in humiliation.   May those who are saying: “Aha! Aha!” Be driven back in shame.   But let those who are seeking you Exult and rejoice in you.+ May those who love your acts of salvation always say: “May God be magnified!”   But I am helpless and poor;+ O God, act quickly in my behalf.+ You are my helper and my rescuer;+ O Jehovah, do not delay.+
