Psalm 38 Book 38 (Zechariah)
And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands?
Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.
Book 38 (Zechariah 13:6)
My wounds stink and are corrupt because of my foolishness.
I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long. For my loins are filled
with a loathsome disease: and there is no soundness in my flesh. I am feeble and sore broken:
I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart.
Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee.
My heart panteth, my strength faileth me: as for the light of mine eyes, it also is
gone from me.
My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my sore; and my kinsmen stand afar off.
They also that seek after my life lay snares for me: and they that seek my hurt speak
mischievous things, and imagine deceits all the day long.

letter govering Spoke 16, Ayin (Eye). Taking this as a clue, and recalling the well established fact
of the high frequency of references to the Eye in Zechariah (cf.
The Eyes of God),
we easily discover a very strong KeyLink between
Psalm 38 and Zechariah:
|Psalm 38 (vs. 10)
||Zechariah (vs. 12.4f)|
|My heart panteth, my
strength faileth me: as for the light of mine eyes, it
also is gone from me.
||In that day, saith the LORD, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his
rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every
horse of the people with blindness. And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart,
The inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be my strength in the LORD of hosts their God.
