Bible Commentary for Psalms 69:8

Wesley's Notes for Psalms 69:8


69:6 For my sake - Because of my sad disappointments. For if they see me forsaken, they will be discouraged by this example.

69:7 For thy sake - For my obedience to thy commands, and zeal for thy glory.

69:9 Zeal - That fervent love which I have for thy house and service, and glory, and people. Eaten - Exhausted my spirits. Upon me - I have been as deeply affected with thy reproaches, as with mine own. This tho' truly belonging to David, yet was also directed by the spirit of God in him, to represent the disposition and condition of Christ, in whom it was more fully accomplished, to whom therefore it is applied in the New Testament, the first part of it, #John 2:17|, and the latter, #Rom 15:3|.

69:10 Wept - For their impiety. Reproach - They derided me for it.
