Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary on the Whole Bible
back to: Psalms
Book: Psalms
Chapter: 70

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.
