Deus in adjutorium. A prayer in persecution.

[1] Unto the end, a psalm for David, to bring to remembrance that the Lord saved him. [2] O God, come to my assistance; O Lord, make haste to help me. [3] Let them be confounded and ashamed that seek my soul: [4] Let them be turned backward, and blush for shame that desire evils to me: Let them be presently turned away blushing for shame that say to me: Tis well, tis well. [5] Let all that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee; and let such as love thy salvation say always: The Lord be magnified.

[4] "Tis well, tis well": Euge, euge. St. Jerome renders it, vah, vah! which is the voice of one insulting and deriding. Some understand it as a detestation of deceitful flatterers.

[6] But I am needy and poor; O God, help me. Thou art my helper and my deliverer: O Lord, make no delay.
