Psalm 42:7 (a) Our Lord JESUS in describing His second baptism said in Luke 12:50, "I have a baptism to be baptized with." He had already been baptized in water, but now He was to be baptized under the wrath of GOD. This passage in Psalm 42:7 describes His experience in going through that baptism. GOD's terrible judgment and the overwhelming sorrows which came from GOD's wrath poured over the soul of His Son at Calvary, where He died for us. It was His baptism under the wrath of GOD that saves our souls. (See also Jonah 2:3; 1 Peter 3:21).

Psalm 65:7 (b) Waves are frequently used as a type of leaders among the people. The waves of the sea are made of the same material as the rest of the waters, but they merely rise to a greater height than the rest of the waters. So, the leaders of the people are made of the same material, and come up from among the other people. They simply rise higher in power, position and authority than others. They soon recede, and disappear. In this passage the Lord is telling us that the great boastings of the leaders will soon be made silent, and their voices will be heard no more. (See also Psalm 89:9; Psalm 107:29).

Psalm 88:7 (a) The Psalmist is comparing the punishing blows of GOD to the waves of the sea. They beat against him unmercifully. This Psalm was written by the "sons of Korah." It is recorded that Korah and his family, with the exception of his sons, went down alive into hell. That was a terrible blow, and it may be that the sons are referring to this in the passage before us.

Isaiah 48:18 (b) This type represents the honor and power conferred by the Lord upon those who are true to His Word, and who live for His glory.

Judges 1:13 (b) These waves are typical of ungodly leaders who, in their hatred of the Lord, and their enmity against the church, become vociferous in their denunciations, and seek wide publicity for their ungodly teachings.
