John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 27:46

About the ninth hour, Jesus cried with a loud voice — Our Lord's great agony probably continued these three whole hours, at the conclusion of which be thus cried out, while he suffered from God himself what was unutterable. My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? — Our Lord hereby at once expresses his trust in God, and a most distressing sense of his letting loose the powers of darkness upon him, withdrawing the comfortable discoveries of his presence, and filling his soul with a terrible sense of the wrath due to the sins which he was bearing. Psalms 22:1.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Matthew 27:46

And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou (o) forsaken me?

(o) That is, in this misery: And this crying out is a natural part of his humanity, which, even though it was void of sin, still felt the wrath of God, the wrath which is due to our sins.

Dr Lamsa's text is a more accurate reflection of this scripture.
It says for this cause I was spared. Which reflects the truth that Jesus was dying in the garden and God spared Him so He could go to the cross. Also, He could not have been forsaken because He committed His Spirit into the hand of the Father, who is also omnipresent.
