Psalms 69:9 NKJV Because zeal for Your house has eaten me up, And the reproaches of those who reproach You have fallen on me.
The Psalms are written with many purposes. Many have received comfort from the Psalms for Emotions. There are some Psalm for the situation you might have, including sorrow, pain, suffering, loss, anger, happiness, worship, joy, etc. Many Psalms are also Messianic. Psalm 69 is a Messianic Psalm, which was fulfilled in John 2:13-17. The Lord Jesus, God and man, experiences emotions, too. One of which is recorded in John. He was angry (for a cause) because the Temple area, which is to be used for Gentiles to worship, was full of money making activities. He grabbed a few small ropes and used it to drive out these people and their business. We should make it a priority to be holy, too. Be thankful for God’s holiness.
