Psalm 70

posted 31 Mar 2014, 01:39 by Ben@theorderoftheblacksheep.com
O God, hurry to save me;
    Eternal One, hurry to my side.
For those who seek to kill me,
    God, may they burn in disgrace and humiliation!
Repulse the attacks; ridicule the efforts
    of those taking pleasure in my pain.
I hear their taunts: “Nah, nah, nah . . . .”
    Let those hecklers fall back upon their brays—ashamed and confused

But let those who pursue You
    celebrate and have joy because of You.
And let the song of those who love Your saving grace
    never cease: “God is great!”
But I am poor and in serious need,
    so hurry to my side, God,
Because You are my helper, my liberator.
    Eternal One, please don’t wait.
