Psalm 70 is a brief paradigm of an individual lament. God initiated a covenant relationship with ancient Israel, and the community nourishes the historical memory of God as the covenant God who comes to deliver. The petitioner in Psalm 70 is not enjoying the covenant blessings because of oppressive opponents. David prayed for the speedy destruction of the wicked, and the preservation of the godly. This psalm is almost the same as the last five verses (Psalm 40). While here, we behold Jesus Christ outlined in poverty and distress. Prayer for deliverance from the enemies. Having known a little about this Psalm, let’s take a study of the verses one after the other. The phrase, “make haste,” was extracted from the following clause in (Psalm 40:13 NIV: Be pleased to save me, LORD; come quickly, LORD, to help me.). It is, “Be pleased, O Lord,” or “Jehovah.” “Make haste to help me, O Lord (Psalm 22:19 NIV: But you, Lord, do not be far from me. You are my strength; come quickly to help me.)David noted author.
It reads in Psalm 70:1-5 KJV:
Make haste, o God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O Lord. Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt. Let them be turned back for a reward of their shame that say, Aha, aha. 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. But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O Lord, make no tarrying.
