New Defender's Study Bible Notes
89:38 wroth with thine anointed. How could God be angry with His “anointed”—that is, His Messiah? He had just promised that His seed and His throne would—like the sun—endure forever (Psalm 89:36). The only rationale for such an anomaly would be that He had been “covered...with shame” (Psalm 89:45), that is, God “hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin” (II Corinthians 5:21). In his persecution by Saul and other enemies, even after being anointed as future king, David was a type of the Messiah, but the ultimate fulfillment awaited the crucifixion of Christ.
