To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David, for the memorial offering.
1Be pleased, O God, to deliver me!
O Yahweh, make haste to help me! 2Let them be put to shame and confusion who seek my life!
Let them be turned back and brought to dishonour who desire my hurt! 3Let them be appalled because of their shame who say, "Aha, Aha!"
4May all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you!
May those who love your salvation say evermore, "God is great!" 5But I am poor and needy; hasten to me, O God!
You are my help and my deliverer;
O Yahweh, do not tarry!
