|dc.description.abstract||There is no consensus on the authorship of Psalm 22.
The superscription of Ps 22 says that it is la-Dawid.
Ancient writers and some modern scholars hold that la-Dawid
indicates Davidic authorship. Some crit i ca l scholars say
that it is not David who authored Ps 22.
The survey on the authorship of Ps 22 reveals that
the ancient writers hold to the Davidic authorship of Ps 22 .
Some modern scholars who indicates Oavidic authorship, hold
to the tradition that David composed most of the psalms,
including Ps 22. It was only in the the 19th century that
the divergent issues relative to the authorship of Ps 22
The study of the ancient Hebrew inscriptions on the
meaning of the preposition la- shows that it consistently
means "belonging to" denoting ownership . Nowhere in Hebrew
epigraphy that la- means "for." In translating the
superscription la-Dawid, it should then mean "be l onging to
David," indicating authorship.
A passage by passage study of Ps 22 , it indicates
that the sufferings mentioned in Ps 22 can be readily
identified within the persecution of David under Saul.
Thus, the study strengthens the idea that David is the
author of the chapter since the experiences mentioned can be
identified with him. The experience of David also extends
to the experience of Jesus which makes this psalm Messianic.
From the study, we can say that la-Dawid means
"belonging to David" denoting a uthorship. Since it is found
in the superscription of Ps 22, it is most likely that David
is the author of such. This claim is strengthened by the
experience of David which can be related to the suffering
described in Ps 22.||en_US
