Psalms Chapter 70


psa 70:0

The speedy destruction of the wicked, and the preservation of the godly.

Psalms 70:1

psa 70:1

This psalm is almost the same as the last five verses of Psalms 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.
