Psalms Chapter 69

Psalms 69:1

psa 69:1


(See Scofield) - (Psa 45:1).

Save me, O God

The New Testament quotations from, and references to, this Psalm indicate in what way it adumbrates Christ. It is the psalm of His humiliation and rejection (Psa 69:4); (Psa 69:7); (Psa 69:8); (Psa 69:10-12). (Psa 69:14-20) may well describe the exercises of His holy soul in Gethsemane (Mat 26:36-45) while (Psa 69:21) is a direct reference to the cross; (Mat 27:34); (Mat 27:48); (Joh 19:28). The imprecatory verses (Psa 69:22-28) are connected (Rom 11:9); (Rom 11:10) with the present judicial blindness of Israel, (Psa 69:25) having special reference to Judas. (Act 1:20) who is thus made typical of his generation, which shared his guilt.

See Psalm 72, next in order of the Messianic Psalms.
