70:1 MAKE HASTE, O GOD, TO DELIVER ME; MAKE HASTE TO HELP ME, O LORD.
70:2 Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt.
70:3 Let them be turned back for a reward of their shame that say, Aha, aha.
70:4 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.
70:5 But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O LORD, make no tarrying.

Overview:
The speedy Destruction of the wicked, and the preservation of
the godly.
- This psalm is almost the same as the last five verses of Ps
40. While here we behold Jesus Christ set forth in poverty and
distress, we also see him denouncing just and fearful Punishment
On his Jewish, Heathen, and antichristian enemies; and pleading
for the joy and happiness of his friends, to his Father's
honour. Let us apply these things to our own troubled
circumstances, and in a believing manner bring them, and the
sinful causes thereof, to our remembrance. Urgent trials should
always awake fervent prayers.
