David soliciteth God to the speedy destruction of the wicked, and preservation of the godly.
Psalms 70:1 To the Overseer, by David.'To cause to remember.' O God, to deliver me, O Jehovah, for my help, haste. Psalms 70:2 Let them be ashamed and confounded Who are seeking my soul, Let them be turned backward and blush Who are desiring my evil. Psalms 70:3 Let them turn back because of their shame, Who are saying, 'Aha, aha.' Psalms 70:4 Let all those seeking Thee joy and be glad in Thee, And let those loving Thy salvation Say continually, 'God is magnified.' Psalms 70:5 And I [am] poor and needy, O God, haste to me, My help and my deliverer [art] Thou, O Jehovah, tarry Thou not!
