“For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.”
King James Version (KJV)
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|.
