Psalm 22:22 I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.
Psalm 22:25 My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear him.
Hebrews 2:11 For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren, 12 Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee
The NT teaches us in Heb. 2:11-12 that Psalm 22:22 (and 22:25, based on the flow of thought in Ps. 22) are foremost the words of the Messiah!
We should also notice carefully that the NT quotation of Ps. 22:22 has “will I sing praise unto thee,” whereas Ps. 22:22 has “will I praise thee.”
Based on how the NT uses the OT in this passage, we learn a glorious truth—Christlikeness in corporate worship is to sing praise to God in the great congregation!
