Psalm 22:7 Parallel
CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
All they that see me laugh me to scorn - They deride or mock me. On the word used here - לעג lâ‛ag - see the notes at Psalm 2:4. The meaning here is to mock, to deride, to treat with scorn. The idea of laughing is not properly in the word, nor would that necessarily occur in the treatment here referred to. How completely this was fulfilled in the case of the Saviour, it is not necessary to say. Compare Matthew 27:39, "And they that passed by, reviled him." There is no evidence that this literally occurred in the life of David.
They shoot out the lip - Margin, "open." The Hebrew word - פטר pâṭar - means properly "to split, to burst open;" then, as in this place, it means to open wide the mouth; to stretch the mouth in derision and scorn. See Psalm 35:21, "They opened their mouth wide against me." Job 16:10, "they have gaped upon me with their mouth."
They shake the head - In contempt and derision. See Matthew 27:39, "Wagging their heads."

While self-interest does not interfere, and the bitter passions …

And those passing by were hurling abuse at Him, wagging their heads
Those passing by were hurling abuse at Him, wagging their heads, and saying, "Ha! You who are going to destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days,
And the people stood by, looking on. And even the rulers were sneering at Him, saying, "He saved others; let Him save Himself if this is the Christ of God, His Chosen One."
"I too could speak like you, If I were in your place. I could compose words against you And shake my head at you.
Many are saying of my soul, "There is no deliverance for him in God." Selah.
So they will make him stumble; Their own tongue is against them; All who see them will shake the head.
We have become a reproach to our neighbors, A scoffing and derision to those around us.
