Psalms 69

Chapter 69

69:1  Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto my soul.

Shoshannim (See Scofield "Psalms 45:1") .

Save me, O God

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

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

69:18  Draw nigh unto my soul, and redeem it: deliver me because of mine enemies.


Heb. goel, Redemp. (Kinsman type). (See Scofield "Isaiah 59:20") .
