To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, to bring to remembrance. Make haste, O God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O LORD.
Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt.
Let them be turned back for a reward of their shame that say, Aha, aha.
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.
But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O LORD, make no tarrying.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

70:1 make haste. The five verses of this psalm are practically identical to the last five verses of Psalm 40. Psalm 40 was a Messianic psalm and so is Psalm 70. Perhaps David was led to tie them both together in this way to emphasize their anticipation of the suffering Messiah.
