Scofield's Reference Notes
Psalms 69



Verse 1

Shoshannim (See Scofield "Psalms 45:1").

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 69:10-12. Psalms 69:14-20 may well describe the exercises of His holy soul in Gethsemane Matthew 26:36-45 while Psalms 69:21 is a direct reference to the cross; Matthew 27:34; Matthew 27:48; John 19:28. The imprecatory verses Psalms 69:22-28 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, next in order of the Messianic Psalms.

Verse 18


Heb. goel, Redemp. (Kinsman type). (See Scofield "Isaiah 59:20").
