A message of hope for those who suffer. On Psalm 69 . By Fabian Massa.

Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.

Psalm 69 . About Sosannim ( Lilies ) .

1 Save me , O God,
that the waters have come up to my neck .
2 I sink in the miry depths ,
and I have no where to put your feet .
I’m in the deep waters ,
and drags me along.
3 I am weary of asking for help ;
I have dry throat.
My eyes fail ,
waiting for my God .
4 more than the hairs of my head
are those who hate me without cause ;
many enemies are free
who seek to destroy it .
How can I return what I did not steal ?

The psalmist cries out to God in intense prayer , prey to unspeakable anguish also expresses an air of complaint ( 3 I am weary of asking for help , I have dry throat. My eyes fail, looking for my God . ) The psalmist expresses the sadness of being convicted and is innocent . ( More than the hairs of my head are those who hate me without cause ; … who seek to destroy . How can I give back what I have stolen? )
Jamieson ‘s comment [1 ] says: » Although it seems to some that the character of the Psalmist in Psalm 69:5 is the sinner , but he is a victim innocent of the crimes alleged maintains the typical character of the composition , and can be taken as at all , as in Psalm 22 , by typically expressive of the feelings of our Savior in the flesh. «
In several verses of this psalm , we can identify situations that Jesus lived , for example :

8 I’m a stranger to my brothers ;
I am a stranger to the sons of my mother.

In John 7.5 The Bible says : The truth is that not even his brothers believed in him. NIV
9 » Zeal for your house will consume me . » When Jesus cleansed the temple , casting merchants, his disciples were memory word:
16 Jesus said, How dare you turn my Father ‘s house into a market! 17 His disciples remembered that it is written : «Zeal for your house will consume me . » NIV .
21 put gall in my food and , for my thirst they gave me vinegar.
While Jesus and nailed to the cross, in agony gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall ( myrrh ), but after trying it , he would not drink . Matthew 27.34 RV 60

29 And I , I’m in pain and distress ,
Protect me , O God , your salvation .
30 With hymns praise the name of God ;
with thanksgiving glorify him .
31 This will please the Lord more
that of a bull or a steer
with its horns and hoofs.

A tremendous teaching, worship God in the midst of trial !

32 The poor will see and be glad;
Hearts liveyou who seek God !
33 For the Lord hears the needy ,
and does not despise his captive people .
34 Let them praise the heavens and the earth,
the seas and everything that moves in them ,
35 For God will save Zion
and rebuild the cities of Judah .
There he established the village
and take possession of the land .
36 The sons inherit his servants ;
the dwell those who love the Lord.

The message is one of hope for those who suffer unjustly . In the end, God will wipe away every tear from their chosen , as it is the same Jesus revealed to John:

He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no, nor will there be mourning nor crying nor pain anymore, for the former things are passed away. Revelation 21.4, RV60

It is important to understand that everything that happened in the life of Jesus was prophesied, so that everyone understands that we do not worship a man who was deified, but God himself who became man. It is God who promises consolation.
