70Psalms

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David, for the memorial offering. O Lord Make Haste to Help Me. Psalm 70(v69)
1 Be pleased, O God, to deliver me!
O Yahweh, make haste to help me!

 
2 Let them be put to shame and confusion who seek my life!
Let them be turned back and brought to dishonour who desire my hurt!

 
3 Let them be appalled because of their shame who say, "Aha, Aha!"
 
4 May all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you!
May those who love your salvation say evermore, "God is great!"

 
5 But I am poor and needy; hasten to me, O God!
You are my help and my deliverer;
O Yahweh, do not tarry!

Notes: This webpage enables you to select-a-version from the Bible versions held on the katapi bible database.
The katapi New Standard Bible is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have printed 'YHWH' in black. The later vowel sounds I have shown in the colour gray;
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.

The katapi New Study Bible reference section displays links to parallel passages, and to direct quotations by New Testament authors to Old Testament passages. Quotations of OT passages by NT authors can in most cases be viewed within their context of the OT passage as a whole, with the quoted text displayed, against a subdued background. Any mismatches, truncated verses, other mistakes ?
