A. 1 Make haste, O God, to deliver me;
make haste to help me, O Yahweh.
B. 2 Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt.
3 Let them be turned back for a reward of their shame that say, Aha, aha.
B’. 4 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee:
and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.
A’. 5 But I am poor and needy:
make haste unto me, O God:
thou art my help and my deliverer;
O Yahweh, make no tarrying.
