Psalm 39

This is a Psalm of David but once again - it speaks about Jesus too.

verse 1: "I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me."
verse 2: "I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, even from good; and my sorrow was stirred."
verse 3:"My heart was hot within me, while I was musing the fire burned:..."

Matthew 26:62-63: "And the high priest arose, and said unto him, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee? But Jesus held his peace..."
67-68: "Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote him with the palms of their hands, Saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he that smote thee?..."

What about the fire?
Mar 14:54: "And Peter followed him afar off, even into the palace of the high priest: and he sat with the servants, and warmed himself at the fire."

Mar 14:60-61: "And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus, saying, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee? But he held his peace, and answered nothing..."

John 19:7-12: "The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.
When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more afraid;
And went again into the judgment hall, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.
Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?
Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.
And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him..."

verse 4: "LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am."
verse 5: "...verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity..."
Can you imagine to hear this message in a pop song on radio or TV or in a concert? I can't.
You can't hear such words even in majority of Churches - or what was left from them.

verse 6: "Surely every man walketh in a vain shew: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who shall gather them."
Even the Church, the Church in the last period is doing something similar - it heapeth up riches and saying: I am rich... (Rev 3:17). But the Lord tells them that they are very poor, they should turn to the Lord to be really rich... similar message is in the following verse.

I AM RICH - Church is described as a woman... Which country was considered rich? and even Christian country? Let me help you... There are many Spanish speaking people living there today... and rich in Spanish is rico or rica for woman.
I AMRICA -> America :)

verse 7: "And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in thee."

verse 8: "Deliver me from all my transgressions: make me not the reproach of the foolish."
What were transgressions of Jesus Christ? Wasn't he sinless? Well, I am not sure if those two things are one and the same - but they could be. Jesus Christ was sinless so maybe this verse is not relevant to him. It could be, that it not - but it also could be, that it is - because if we look on a deeper level - he said about himself:
Mat 19:17: And he (Jesus) said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God..."
Jesus was tempted by Satan in flesh... but he didn't sin. But what did he do? He had justified the wicked - that's us.
Now, what would you say about a judge, who would justified someone, who did evil things to you or to someone else, even though, the judge would know that that person was guilty? Such a judge would be considered also wicked...
And it is said:
Pro 17:15: "He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD."
In such a way Jesus had put all our sins on himself, on his flesh and crucified sin together with flesh...
Those things go quite deep... but let this suffice for now.

verse 13: "O spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go hence, and be no more."
Not that David or Jesus would cease to exist - but that they would go out of this strange world, where they (David, Jesus, every Christian) are strangers... but at the same time, we consider (at least at the beginning of our Christian walk) - to be strangers to God too... so there is no contradiction with the verse 12.
