Day 13 — Psalm 70

A cry of distress

For the choirmaster, of David, for commemoration.

Oh come and rescue me, God,
Yahweh come quickly and help me!
Shame and dishonor on those
who are out to kill me.

Down with them! Disgrace on those
who enjoy my misfortune!
May they be aghast with shame,
those who say to me, ‘Aha! Aha!’

But joy and gladness
for all who seek You!
To all who love Your saving power
give constant cause to say, ‘God is great!’

To me, poor wretch,
come quickly, God!
My Helper, my Savior, Yahweh,
come without delay!

Next… Day 14 — Psalm 71
