Parallel Commentaries
Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary

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.

Pulpit Commentary

Verse 5. - But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God. Instead of this last clause, Psalm 40:17 has, "Yet the Lord thinketh upon me," which cannot be ascribed to a corruption, but must be an alteration made deliberately. Thou art my Help and my Deliverer; O Lord, make no tarrying. Identical with Psalm 40:17, except that here once more "Jehovah" replaces "Elohim."





Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible

But I am poor and needy,.... In Psalm 40:17 it follows, yet "the Lord thinketh on me"; instead of which it is here; see Gill on Psalm 40:17;

make haste unto me, O God; which repeats for sense the same petition as in Psalm 71:1;

thou art my help and my deliverer; O Lord, make no tarrying; in Psalm 40:17 it is, "O my God".
