Mark 15:34 Meaning and Commentary

Mark 15:34

And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice
(See Gill on Matthew 27:46);

saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?
in Matthew it is, "Eli, Eli", Both "Eli" and "Eloi", are Hebrew words, and signify the same; and are both used in ( Psalms 22:1 Psalms 22:2 ) , from whence the whole is taken:

which is, being interpreted, my God, my God, why hast thou forsaken
me? (See Gill on Matthew 27:46).
