Psalm 70

by Justin David
Husband, Father, Rabbi

For the leader, a Psalm of David, to shout out

Rescue me, Goddammit!
Come on,
Help me out,
Give me shelter!

They would love to destroy me,
But they’ll wind up
Looking stupid,
Backing off,
Tails between their legs.
The whole time yelling,
“Get him! Get him!”

Finding You is my only
Joy. In You I know love,
Compassion, constancy.

You never leave.
But I can’t hold on.

So now,
Here I am,
Poor and

Help me out,
Give me shelter,
You’re all I’ve got …

This is no time to wait!
