Psalms 69 Commentary

Please choose a passage:

Psalm 69:1-4

David implores God to save him from the imminent dangers threatening to sweep his life away like a flood. He is exhausted from crying out and is surrounded by many enemies who unjustly are against him.

Psalm 69:20-21

David describes his grief and sickness over his reproach. He laments how he finds no comfort, and how from the places where he expects to receive sympathy, he is given gall and vinegar instead. This scripture is prophetic of the gall and sour wine which Jesus was offered on the cross.
