- <To the chief music-maker.
To keep in memory.>
Let your salvation come quickly, O God;
come quickly to my help, O Lord.
- Let those who go after my soul have shame and trouble;
let those who have evil designs against me be turned back and made foolish.
- Let those who say Aha, aha!
be turned back as a reward of their shame.
- Let all those who are looking for you be glad and have joy in you;
let the lovers of your salvation ever say, May God be great.
- But I am poor and in need;
come to me quickly, O God;
you are my help and my saviour;
let there be no waiting, O Lord.
