Psalms 109:25

I became also a reproach unto them: when they looked upon me they shook their heads.
Read Chapter 109

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
25. "Help me, O Lord my God: O save me according to Thy mercy" (ver. 25). This may be referred to the whole, both to the Head and to the body: to the Head, owing to His having taken the form of a servant; to the body, on account of the servants themselves. For He might even in them have said unto God, "Help Me:" and, "O save Me:" as in them He said unto Paul, "Why persecutest thou Me"? The following words, "according to Thy mercy," describe grace given gratuitously, not according to the merit of works.

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
