Zeal for Your House

For zeal for Your house has consumed Me, and the reproaches of those who reproach You have fallen on Me. Psalm 69:9

John confirms for us that this verse refers to Jesus: 

His disciples remembered that it was written, “Zeal for your house will consume me.” John 2:17

Paul affirms the second half of the verse also refers to Jesus (and therefore is an example for us) in Romans 15:

We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up. For Christ did not please himself, but as it is written, “The reproaches of those who reproached you fell on me.” For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. Romans 15:1-4
