Psa 70: A simple cry for help
the director of music. Of David. A petition.
Comments: A very simple petition for the Lord to come
and help him against those who would seek his downfall.]
A cry to the Lord to help him
O God, to save me;
come quickly, Lord, to help me.
His desire for those who seek his downfall to be dealt with
those who want to take my life
be put to shame and confusion;
may all who desire my ruin
be turned back in disgrace.
May they be brought to shame
May those who
say to me, ‘Aha! Aha!'
turn back because of their shame.
May those who seek the Lord be vindicated
But may all who seek
rejoice and be glad in you;
may those who long for your saving help always say,
‘The Lord is great!'
Repeat of his cry for help from the Lord
But as for
me, I am poor and needy;
come quickly to me, O God.
You are my help and my deliverer;
Lord, do not delay.
Comments: Prayers can't much more simple than this.
Lord please help. Lord please deal with those who desire evil
