16For dogs have surrounded me;
A band of evildoers has encompassed me;
They pierced my hands and my feet.
17I can count all my bones.
They look, they stare at me;
18They divide my garments among them,
And for my clothing they cast lots.
19But You, O LORD, be not far off;
O You my help, hasten to my assistance.
20Deliver my soul from the sword,
My only life from the power of the dog.
21Save me from the lion's mouth;
From the horns of the wild oxen You answer me.
With regard to the prophetic aspect of this verse, especially on Easter weekend, I would point out that we (Jews and Gentiles) are all the dogs that surrounded Christ (v 16), as hounds surround the prey being hunted. We all are the band of evildoers that have surrounded Him, putting him to death.
