1Be pleased, O God, to deliver me;
O Lord, make haste to help me.
2Let those who seek my life be put to shame and confounded;
let those who take pleasure in my misfortune draw back and be disgraced.
3Let those who say to me “Aha!” and gloat over me
turn back because of their shame.
4Let all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you;
let those who love your salvation say forever, “Great is the Lord!”
5But as for me, I am poor and needy; come to me quickly, O God.
You are my helper and my deliverer; O Lord, do not tarry.
