Matthew 27:43

Let him deliver him now (rusasqw nun). They add the word "now" to Psalms 21 ; Psalms 22:8 . That is the point of the sneer at Christ's claim to be God's son thrown in his teeth again and at the willingness and power of God to help his "son." The verb qelw here may mean love as in the Septuagint ( Psalms 18:20 ; Psalms 41:12 ) or "cares for" (Moffatt), "gin he cares ocht for him" (Braid Scots).
