July 24th Psalms chapters 65-67, 69-70

Today we are going to focus on the reading in Psalm chapter 69.  This Psalm is a psalm of David who is pleading to God because of his enemies that have surrounded him.  As he pleads and asks God to curse his enemies we see something different also coming to light in these verses.  Before we dive into the extra meaning in the text let me remind you that the psalms were written in between the years of 600 B.C. and 1,400 B.C.  This is very important to remember as we look on.

This Psalm, while indeed is talking about David’s life and David’s adversaries, is also talking about Jesus the Messiah and His crucifixion.  Let’s look at just a couple things that we can glean from these verses:  

Verse 3 states the dry throat and eyes that are weary from crying, (John 19:28)

verse 4 “being my enemies wrongfully” (John 19:4)

vs verse 7 “because for Your sake I have borne reproach” verse 9 “zeal for your house has eaten me up. (John 2:17)

verse 9 “the reproaches of those who reproach You have fallen on me” (He took our reproach)

verse 20 “Reproach has broken my heart” When they placed the spear in His side, blood and water flowed.  This is caused by the pericardium being filled with fluid (congestive heart failure) causing the heart to implode on itself and break.  (John 19:34)

verse 21  “They also gave me gall for my food and for my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink” (Matthew 27:34)

 

This is another example of the inspired Word of God.  This is a testimony of the death of Christ hundreds of years before it had happened.  Look at these chapters also in psalms:  Psalm 53 and Psalm 22
