What does Psalm 89:46 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Psalms 89:46

How long, Lord, wilt thou hide thyself? for ever?
&c.] When God hides his face front his people, though it is but for a little while, it seems long, and a kind of an eternity to them; and so it seemed to the man Christ Jesus; and indeed what he endured, when his Father hid his face from him, was of the same kind with an eternal absence; see ( Psalms 13:1 ) ( 22:1 ) ,

shall thy wrath burn like fire?
it did so when Christ bore the sins of his people, and all the punishment due unto them; when his strength was dried up like a potsherd; when he, the antitype of the passover lamb roasted with fire, was sacrificed for us; all which is entirely consistent with God's everlasting and invariable love to him, as his own Son. (See Gill on Psalms 89:38).
