The final plea to Yahweh not to forsake David (Ps 38:21-38:22)

“Do not forsake me!


O my God!

Do not be far from me!

Make haste to help me!


My salvation!”

The final plea of David was to remind Yahweh not to forsake him, not to abandon him. He wanted Yahweh to come quickly to help him. This psalm ends with the cry that Yahweh was his salvation.
