Psalm 69:6

Let not those who wait for You, O Lord GOD of hosts, be ashamed because of me.

Psalm 69 is another messianic psalm. 

Matthew 27 fulfills the prophecy of verse 21 when they gave gall for Jesus to drink while on the cross (gall was a type of pain reliever so the person would live longer).

 John 2:17 quotes verse when Jesus cleared the temple on Palm Sunday- “Zeal for Your house will consume me.” 

Verse 11 reveals that the messiah wore sackcloth, a sign of humility and mourning and repentance.This psalm also reveals another truth: Has anybody ever asked you where you will spend eternity? I grew up saying “heaven”.

Fact is, we will spend eternity on earth. A new earth, a new heaven, a new Jerusalem (Zion).
(Revelation 21:1)

The psalm ends with this promise: And those who love His name shall dwell in it. I want a room with a view!
