Yeshua quotes this psalm and applies it to Himself. Yet, the psalm speaks of the author’s sins, guilt, and iniquity. How could such things apply to Messiah?! Join us on a fascinating and insightful journey into this “stereoscopic” psalm that describes the shared sufferings between Messiah and ourselves.
(An acrostic psalm, but ו and ק are missing.)
[א] To you, Adonai, I lift up my soula. 2 O my God, [ב] in You I trust; let me not be put to shamea ; let not my enemies exult over me. 3 [ג] Indeed, none who hopea for You shall be put to shameb; they shall be ashamedc who are wantonly treacherous. 4 [ד] Make me to know Your ways, Adonai; teacha me Your paths. 5 [ה] Lead me in Your truth and teachbme, for You are the God of my salvation; for You I have hopedb all the day. 6 [ז] Remembera Your mercy, Adonai, and Your lovingkingdnessa, for they have been from eternity. 7 [ח] Rememberb not the sins of my youth or my transgressions. According to Your lovingkingdnessb rememberc me – You; for the sake of Your goodnessa, Adonai. 8 [ט] Goodb and upright is Adonai; therefore He directs sinners in the waya. 9 [י] He leads the humble in what is right, and teachesc the humble His wayb. 10 [כ] All the paths of Adonai are lovingkingdnessc and truth, for those who keep His covenant and His testimonies. 11 [ל] For Your name’s sake, Adonai, pardon my guilt, for it is great.
[מ] Who is the man who fears Adonai? Him will He direct in the wayc that he should choose. 13 [נ] His soulb shall abide [lit. ‘spend the night’] in goodnessc, and his seed shall inherit the land. 14 [ס] The secret of Adonai is for those who fear Him, and He makes known to them His covenant. 15 [ע] My eyes are ever toward Adonai, for He will pluck my feet out of the net. 16 [פ] Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted. 17 [צ] The troubles of my heart are enlarged; bring me out of my distresses. 18 [ר] Consider my affliction and my trouble, and forgive all my sins. 19 [ר]Consider how many are my foes, and with what violent hatred they hate me. 20 [ש] Oh, guard my soulc, and deliver me! Let me not be put to shamed, for I take refuge in You. 21 [ת] May integrity and uprightness preserve me, for I hopec for You. 22 (פ) Redeem, O God, Israel from all his troubles.
Galatians 2:20 (CJB) When the Messiah was executed on the stake as a criminal, I was too; so that my proud ego no longer lives. But the Messiah lives in me, and the life I now live in my body I live by the same trusting faithfulness that the Son of God had, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
Isaiah 29:13 And the Lord said: “Because this people draw near with their mouth and honor Me with their lips, while their hearts are far from Me, and their fear of Me is a commandment taught by men.”
Psalm 24:3-4 Who shall ascend the hill of Adonai? And who shall stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to falsehood and does not swear deceitfully.
Genesis 4:7 “If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door. Its desire is contrary to you, but you must rule over it.”
John 15:25 “But the word that is written in their Torah must be fulfilled: ‘They hated Me without a cause.’”
