13 Be pleased to save me, Lord;
    come quickly, Lord, to help me.(A)

14 May all who want to take my life(B)
    be put to shame and confusion;(C)
may all who desire my ruin(D)
    be turned back in disgrace.
15 May those who say to me, “Aha! Aha!”(E)
    be appalled at their own shame.
16 But may all who seek you(F)
    rejoice and be glad(G) in you;
may those who long for your saving help always say,
    “The Lord is great!”(H)

17 But as for me, I am poor and needy;(I)
    may the Lord think(J) of me.
You are my help(K) and my deliverer;(L)
    you are my God, do not delay.(M)

15 Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto me, Aha, aha.

16 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as love thy salvation say continually, The Lord be magnified.

17 But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me: thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.
