    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 70:2

    Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul - The only change here from Psalm 40:14, is the omission of the word "together" which occurs there, and the omission of the words "to destroy it."

    Let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt - This corresponds in the Hebrew entirely with Psalm 40:14.
