Scofield's Reference Notes

Psalms 118

Verse 22

The stone which the builders refused

See "Christ (as Stone)," See Scofield " :-". See Scofield " :-".

Psalms 118:0 looks beyond the rejection of the Stone (Christ) to His final exaltation in the kingdom (Psalms 118:22).

See Psalms 2:0, first of the Messianic Psalms.

Verse 29

O give thanks unto the Lord

The Messianic Psalms: Summary. That the Psalms contain a testimony to Christ our Lord Himself affirmed (Luke 24:44) and the New Testament quotations from the Psalter point unerringly to those Psalms which have the Messianic character. A close spiritual and prophetic character as surely identifies others. Christ is seen in the Psalms

(1) in two general character, as suffering (for example Psalms 22:0), and as entering into His kingdom glory (for example Psalms 2:0; Psalms 24:0.) Compare (Luke 24:25-42.24.27).

(2) Christ is seen in His person

(a) as Son of God (Psalms 2:7) and very God; (Psalms 45:6); (Psalms 45:7); (Psalms 102:25); (Psalms 110:1).

(b) as Son of man (Psalms 8:4-19.8.6)

(c) as Son of David (Psalms 89:3); (Psalms 89:4); (Psalms 89:27); (Psalms 89:29).

(3) Christ is seen in His offices

(a) as Prophet (Psalms 22:22); (Psalms 22:25); (Psalms 40:9); (Psalms 40:10).

(b) as Priest (Psalms 110:4) and

(c) as King (for example Psalms 2:0; Psalms 24:0.)

(4) Christ is seen in His varied work. As Priest He offers Himself in sacrifice (Psalms 22:1-19.22.31); (Psalms 40:6); (Hebrews 10:5-58.10.12) and, in resurrection, as the Priest-Shepherd, ever living to make intercession; (Psalms 23:1-19.23.6); (Hebrews 7:21-58.7.25); (Hebrews 13:20). As Prophet He proclaims the name of Jehovah as Father; (Psalms 22:22); (John 20:17). As King He fulfils the Davidic Covenant (Psalms 89:1-19.89.52) and restores alike the dominion of man over creation; (Psalms 8:4-19.8.8); (Romans 8:17-45.8.21) and of the Father over all. (1 Corinthians 15:25-46.15.28).

(5) The Messianic Psalms give, also, the inner thoughts, the exercises of soul, of Christ in His earthly experiences. (See, e.g, (Psalms 16:8-19.16.11); (Psalms 22:1-19.22.31); (Psalms 22:1-19.22.17).
