Psalm 22 … Yeshua crucified

This Psalm was written more than 1000 years before Yeshua lived.

My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?

  • Mark 15:34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

O my God, I cry in the day time, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent.

But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.

Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them.

They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded.

But I am a worm*, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.

*H8438 תּוֹלָע towla` (to-law’) n-m. the crimson-grub, but used only {in this connection} of the color from it, and cloths dyed therewith. Usually in the Bible, the Hebrew word for a worm is “rimmah”, which means a maggot – but the Hebrew word Jesus used here for worm, is Towla.

The Crimson worm [coccus ilicis] is a very special worm that looks more like a grub than a worm. When it is time for the female to have babies, which she does only once in her life, she willingly climbs the trunk of a Kermes Oak tree and attaches her body. In the same way Yeshua willingly took up the cross, once for our salvation, and producing an offspring for the Father.

The worm then secretes a crimson, or deep red fluid which creates a hard shell of protection for the babies. This fluid will leave a permanent stain on the tree. After the worm has attached herself and laid her eggs there is a 3 day period in which the head and the tail of the mother worm encompass the eggs forming the shape of a heart.

In order for the offspring to escape the shell becomes white like snow and softens. This is a natural shellac that now preserves the tree.

  • Isaiah 1:18 “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”

All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,

  • Matthew 27:31 “And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.”
  • Matthew 27:41-42 “Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said, He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.”
  • Luke 23:36 “And the soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, and offering him vinegar”

He trusted on the Lord that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.

But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother’s breasts.

10 I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother’s belly.

11 Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help.

12 Many bulls (reference to power and leadership) have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan (Country of the Philistines) have beset me round.

  • Matthew 27:1-2 “When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death: And when they had bound him, they led him away, and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor.”

13 They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion.

  • Matthew 27:22-23 “Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified. And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.”

14 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.

15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.

16 For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.

  • John 20:25, 27 “The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe. Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.”

17 I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.

  • John 19:33 “But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs”

18 They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.

  • John 19:24 “They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.”

19 But be not thou far from me, O Lord: O my strength, haste thee to help me.

20 Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling (beloved) from the power (control) of the dog. (Hebrew euphemism for prostitute, thus meaning the priests that are prostituting themselves out to other gods.)

21 Save me from the lion’s mouth: for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns. (Another euphemism meaning “from the power of the ‘wild bulls’ or foreign leaders)

  • Matthew 2:1, 7 “Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem. Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.”

22 I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.

23 Ye that fear the Lord, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel.

24 For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him; but when he cried unto him, he heard.

  • Numbers 20:16 “And when we cried unto the Lord, he heard our voice, and sent an angel, and hath brought us forth out of Egypt”

25 My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear him.

26 The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the Lord that seek him: your heart shall live forever.

27 All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the Lord: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.

  • Isaiah 45:23 “I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.”

28 For the kingdom is the Lord’s: and he is the governor among the nations.

29 All they that be fat (rich, fertile)upon earth shall eat and worship: all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him: and none can keep alive his own soul.

30 A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation.

31 They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done this.

One day the entire world will know what YHVH has done for us, some will rejoice, others will wail.

  1. There was nothing “fake” about the death of Yeshua and yes I see Him as the Lamb slain. Revelation 5:6 “And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.”

    John 1:29 “The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.”

    Praising YHVH for this!


    1. It is impossible for YHVH to die. The essence of YHVH can be manifested in a multitude of “beings” and as such the Scripture John 1:1 affirms this “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

      So, with this in mind, Yeshua is 100% flesh and his mind/spirit/heart which we call “the soul” was 100% YHVH and this is affirmed again in John 14:10 “Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.”

      Yeshua literally means ‘YHVH is my salvation’
