Chapter 70

35:21,25; Proverbs 24:17,18; Ezekiel 25:3; 26:2; 36:2

Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.
5:11; 35:27; 40:16; 97:12; Isaiah 61:10; 65:13,14; Lamentations 3:25; John 16:20

But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O LORD, make no tarrying.
