comment What ancient sources discuss the meaning of Psalm 22?
@ba Ok, gotcha. I was confused at first because I didn't know who Yonasan was, but I though better of editing it in case there was a good explanation like this (I am only a beginner in Hebrew, took only a couple semesters). Thank you for clarifying!

@ba thanks for the update. I didn't want to edit your answer as it is a simple typo, but I believe you mean Targum Yonatan, not Yonasan ;) Thanks again for your response! I appreciate it!

It says, "Our Sages, however, interpreted it as referring to Esther (Mid. Ps. 22:1, Meg. 15b)." Where could I find these works. I do not know what the abbreviations are for.

How old is Rashi's commentary? I was hoping to find something BCE.

Hello @Zvi thank you for your enlightening answer. I was hoping you might also consider responding to this question concerning the date of these sources.

The intended implication was that my marriage would be holy unto G-d/Hashem.
