Dearly beloved brethren, one of the painful thing that happened to our Lord, during His passion, was shameful reproach. See how it was prophesied.

Isaiah 50:6 I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting..

See how the blessed Holy Spirit amplified it, after His passion and ascension.

Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
The proud have had me greatly in derision [ they mock me excessively ]: yet have I not declined from thy law. – Psalms 119:51

Beloved saints in the old testament and believers in the new testament experienced painful and shameful treatment in the hands of their persecutors. See some of these painful and shameful experiences..

Job 30:9 And now am I their song, yea, I am their byword.
Job 30:1 But now they that are younger than I have me in derision, whose fathers I would have disdained to have set with the dogs of my flock.
Psalms 35:16 With hypocritical mockers in feasts, they gnashed upon me with their teeth.
Psalms 44:13 Thou makest us a reproach to our neighbours, a scorn and a derision to them that are round about us.
Psalms 44:14 Thou makest us a byword among the heathen, a shaking of the head among the people.
Heb 10:32 — Heb 10:33 But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions; Partly, whilst ye were made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst ye became companions of them that were so used.
Heb 11:36 And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:
The proud have had me greatly in derision [ they mock me excessively ]: yet have I not declined from thy law. – Psalms 119:51

No wonder, the blessed Holy Spirit exhorts saints of God not to be surprised, when such painful situations happen to them.

1 Peter 4:12-14 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.

This was the plight of king David at this point. He was going through painful, reproaches and derision in the hands of his adversaries. See it yourself.

The proud have had me greatly in derision [ they mock me excessively ]: yet have I not declined from thy law. – Psalms 119:51

See how other Bible versions explained it.

NLT
Psalms 119:51 The proud hold me in utter contempt, but I do not turn away from your instructions.

AMP BIBLE
Psalm 119:51The proud have had me greatly in derision, yet have I not declined in my interest in or turned aside from Your law.

But then, like our master and Lord endured it and triumphed, so king David, did, by holding on to the word of God that could not fail.

The proud have had me greatly in derision [ they mock me excessively ]: yet have I not declined from thy law. – Psalms 119:51

Beloved, are you presently facing this type of derision and reproach because of your Christian faith?

Then follow the good example of our master and Lord and king David. It will soon be over. See what the Bible says.

Isaiah 50:10 Who is among you that feareth the LORD, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the LORD, and stay upon his God.

You shall triumph in Jesus name.

The proud have had me greatly in derision [ they mock me excessively ]: yet have I not declined from thy law. – Psalms 119:51
