1For the choir director. [A Psalm] of David; for a memorial. O God, [hasten] to deliver me; O LORD, hasten to my help! 2Let those be ashamed and humiliated Who seek my life; Let those be turned back and dishonored Who delight in my hurt. 3Let those be turned back because of their shame Who say, “Aha, aha!” 4Let all who seek You rejoice and be glad in You; And let those who love Your salvation say continually, “Let God be magnified.” 5But I am afflicted and needy; Hasten to me, O God! You are my help and my deliverer; O LORD, do not delay.
