Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Psalms 22:14-15

_ _ Utter exhaustion and hopeless weakness, in these circumstances of pressing danger, are set forth by the most expressive figures; the solidity of the body is destroyed, and it becomes like water; the bones are parted; the heart, the very seat of vitality, melts like wax; all the juices of the system are dried up; the tongue can no longer perform its office, but lies parched and stiffened (compare Genesis 49:4; 2 Samuel 14:14; Psalms 58:8). In this, God is regarded as the ultimate source, and men as the instruments.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 22:11-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 22:14

Water — My spirits are spent and gone like water which once spilt can never be recovered; my very flesh is melted within me, and I am become as weak as water. Bones — I am as unable to help myself, and as full of torment, as if all my bones were disjointed. Wax — Melted, through fear and overwhelming grief.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Psalms 22:14

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

(h) Before he spoke of the cruelty of his enemies, and now he declares the inward grief of the mind, so that Christ was tormented both in soul and body.
