A prayer asking God to deliver from mortal enemies and thus move all the saints to joyful praise.
st. 1 = vv. 1-3
st. 2 = v. 4
st. 3 = v. 5
This short prayer for God's help from enemies who threaten the psalmist's life is a revision of Psalm 40:13-17. The prayer is framed by pleas to God to "come quickly" (w. 1, 5; st. 1, 3). Between these urgent calls are prayers asking God to bring disgrace upon the psalmist's enemies (st. 1) and to bring joy to "all who seek" the LORD (st. 2). Bert Polman (PHH 37) versified this psalm in 1983 for the Psalter Hymnal.
Before or after the congregational prayer, especially in time of threat to God's people; the more elaborate concertato version suggested is useful during Advent.
