    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 71:2

    Deliver me in thy righteousness - See the notes at Psalm 31:1. The first three verses of this psalm seem in fact to have been taken, with slight variations, from the first three verses of Psalm 31.

    And cause me to escape - That is, from impending dangers; from the power of my enemies.

    Incline thine ear unto me - In Psalm 31:2, this is, "Bow down thine ear to me." The idea is the same. See the notes at that place. Compare the notes at Psalm 17:6.

    And save me - In Psalm 31:2, this is, "Deliver me speedily."
