PSALM 70 PERPETUAL NECESSITY
URGENT PLEA V.1
I NEED FAST RESCUE Make haste, O God, to deliver me;
UNUSUAL PREDICAMENT V.2-3
I NEED FAST RESOURCES Make haste to help me, O LORD.
HUMILIATE ALL OPPONENTS Let them be ashamed
HARASS ALL OPPOSITION and confounded that seek after my soul:
HALT ALL OBSTRUCTERS let them be turned backward
HINDER ALL OFFENDERS and put to confusion, that desire my hurt.
I NEED FAST REVERSALS
HASTY OVERTURN Let them be turned back for a reward
HAUNTING OUTRAGE of their shame that say, Aha, aha.
UNALTERABLE POSSIBILITIES V.4
I NEED FULFILLING RESULTS
REASSURED Let all those that seek thee rejoice
RELIEVED and be glad in thee:
RESOLUTE and let such as love your salvation say continually,
REVERENTIAL Let God be magnified.
UNIQUE PRESCRIPTION V.5
I NEED FAITHFUL REVIEWS
POVERTY IS WEALTH But I am poor and needy:make haste To me
WEAKNESS IS STRENGTH O God: thou art my help and my deliverer;
TROUBLE IS TRIUMPH O LORD, make no tarrying.
“Make haste, O God, my soul to bless!
My help and my deliverer thou;
Make haste, for I’m in deep distress,
My case is urgent; help me now.
Make haste, O God! make haste to save!
For time is short, and death is nigh;
Make haste ere yet I’m in my grave,
And with the lost forever lie.
Make haste, for I am poor and low;
And Satan mocks my prayers and tears;
O God, in mercy be not slow,
But snatch me from my horrid fears.
Make haste, O God, and hear my cries;
Then with the souls who seek thy face,
And those who thy salvation prize,
Will magnify thy matchless grace.” C.H.S.
