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 69:10-19.69.12.Psalms 69:14-19.69.20 may well describe the exercises of His holy soul in Gethsemane Matthew 26:36-40.26.45 while Psalms 69:21 is a direct reference to the cross ; Matthew 27:34; Matthew 27:48; John 19:28. The imprecatory verses Psalms 69:22-19.69.28 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 Psalms 72:0, next in order of the Messianic Psalms.
