Joseph Benson's Commentary of the Old and New Testaments
Psalms 70



Verses 1-5

A.M. 2981. — B.C. 1023.

This Psalm is copied almost word for word from the 40th, from Psalms 40:13 to the end; and, perhaps, it is for this reason entitled, A Psalm to bring to remembrance. For it may sometimes be of use to pray over again the prayers which we have formerly made to God on like occasions. David here prays that God would send help to him, shame to his enemies, and joy to his friends. The reader will find in the notes on Psalms 40 th all that is necessary for the elucidation of this Psalm.
