(2) There are two omissions here from Psalm 40:14, "together" and "to destroy it."

Verse 2. - Let them be ashamed and confounded. Psalm 40:14 adds, "together." That seek after my soul. Psalm 40 adds, "to destroy it." Let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt. Identical with Psalm 40:14, and translated more literally. Let them be ashamed and confounded,.... In Psalm 40:14 it is added, "together"; See Gill on Psalm 40:14;

that seek after my soul; or "life"; in Psalm 40:14 it is added, "to destroy it"; for that was the end of their seeking after it;

let them be turned backward, &c. See Gill on Psalm 40:14. 70:1-5 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.
