Through Suffering – Psalm 70

September 8, 2021

Be pleased, Lord, to rescue me;

Hurry, Lord, to help me.

May those be ashamed and humiliated together

Who seek my life to destroy it;

May those be turned back and dishonored

Who delight in my hurt.

May those be appalled because of their shame

Who say to me, ‘Aha, aha!’

May all who seek You rejoice and be glad in You;

May those who love Your salvation continually say,

‘The Lord be exalted!’

But I am afflicted and needy;

May the Lord be mindful of me.

You are my help and my Savior;

Do not delay, my God.”

(Ps. 40:13-17 NASB)
