Christ's Restoring Work

No psalm, unless it be the twenty-second, is more frequently or more directly referred, in the New Testament, to the Lord Jesus Christ. You may take the following citations as illustrations. Christ is here prophetically represented as saying they that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs on mine head: they that would destroy me, being mine enemies wrongfully, are mighty." (V.4.) In the fifteenth chapter of the Gospel of John, this language is reproduced: " But this cometh to pass , that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, they hated me without cause." In the twenty-second and twenty-third verses of this psalm it is written: " Let their table become a snare before them; and that which should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap. Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not; and make their loins continually shake."
