1021 (Title.) A Psalm. This Psalm is almost word for word the same as the five last verses of Psalm
40; and it is written as a part of the succeeding Psalm in about
27 MSS. Both Psalm evidently appear to have been written by David during the rebellion of Absalom, and probably at the crisis when he heard of the sanguinary counsel which Ahithophel had given respecting him; or, as some suppose, when beyond Jordan.
2 Samuel 17:1-21 Moreover Ahithophel said to Absalom, Let me now choose out twelve thousand men, and I will arise and pursue after David this night...
Psalm 38:1 O lord, rebuke me not in your wrath: neither chasten me in your hot displeasure.
Psalm 40:13 Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to help me.
Psalm 69:18 Draw near to my soul, and redeem it: deliver me because of my enemies.
Psalm 71:12 O God, be not far from me: O my God, make haste for my help.
Psalm 143:7 Hear me speedily, O LORD: my spirit fails: hide not your face from me, lest I be like to them that go down into the pit.
