In a recent post we talked about how to see all Scripture as a revelation of Jesus–even the Old Testament, which testified of Him before His visit to this earth (see John 5:39). We looked for Jesus in Psalm 119 by applying His name in its verses wherever possible. Here is another block of verses in that Psalm with Jesus as the central focus:
17 Deal bountifully with Your servant, that I may live and trust in Jesus.
18 Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in Jesus.
19 I am a stranger in the earth, hide not Jesus from me.
20 My soul breaks for the longing that it has for Jesus at all times.
21 You have rebuked the proud who are cursed, those who stray from Jesus.
22 Remove from me reproach and contempt, for I have followed Jesus.
23 Princes also sat and spoke against me, but Your servant did meditate in Jesus.
24 Jesus is my delight and my counselor.
25 My soul is dragging in the dust. Give me life through Jesus.
26 I have spoken of my ways and You heard me; teach me about Jesus.
27 Make me understand the way of Jesus, so I will talk of His wonderful works.
28 My soul melts for heaviness; strengthen me through Jesus.
29 Remove from me the way of lying, and grant me Jesus in Your grace.
30 I have chosen the way of truth; Jesus I have set before me.
31 I have stayed with Jesus, O Lord, put me not to shame.
32 I will run the way of Jesus, when You will enlarge my heart.
33 Teach me, O Lord, the way of Jesus, and I will keep it to the end.
34 Give me understanding and I will trust in Jesus, yes, I will follow Him with my whole heart.
35 Make me travel in the path of Jesus, for in that do I delight.
36 Direct my heart to Jesus, and not to covetousness.
37 Turn away my eyes from beholding vanity, and give me life in Jesus.
38 Establish Jesus to Your servant, who is devoted to Your fear.
39 Turn away my reproach which I fear, for Jesus is good.
40 Behold, I have longed after Jesus, give me life in Your righteousness.
41 Let Your mercies come also to me, O Lord, even Your salvation through Jesus.
42 So will I be able to answer him who reproaches me, for I have Jesus.
43 And take not the word of truth completely out of my mouth, for I hope in Jesus.
44 So I will trust in Jesus continually for ever and ever.
45 And I will walk at liberty, for I seek Jesus.
46 I will speak of Jesus before kings, and will not be ashamed.
47 I will lift up my hands to Jesus, whom I have loved.
48 My hands will I lift up to Your Son, whom I have loved, and I will meditate in Jesus.
49 Remember Jesus when You think about me; upon Him You have caused me to hope.
50 This is my comfort in my affliction: Jesus has given me life.
51 The proud have ridiculed me greatly, yet I have not strayed from Jesus.
52 For a long time now I have remembered Jesus, O Lord, and have comforted myself.
53 Horror has taken hold upon me because of the wicked who forsake Jesus.
54 Jesus has been my song in the house of my pilgrimage.
55 I have remembered You, O Lord, in the night, and have trusted in Jesus.
56 This I had, because I trust in Jesus.
57 You are my portion, O Lord, I have said I would trust in Jesus.
58 I beg for Your favor with my whole heart, be merciful to me through Jesus.
59 I thought on my ways and I turned my feet to Jesus.
60 I made haste and delayed not to follow Jesus.
61 Wicked people have robbed me, but I have not forgotten Jesus.
62 At midnight I will rise to give thanks to You because of Jesus.
63 I keep company with all those who respect You, and those who trust in Jesus.
64 The earth, O Lord, is full of Your mercy; teach me about Jesus.
65 You have dealt well with Your servant, O Lord, through Jesus.
66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge, for I have believed in Jesus.
67 Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I follow Jesus.
68 You are good, and You do good; teach me about Jesus.
69 The proud have forged a lie against me, but I will trust in Jesus with my whole heart.
70 Their heart is as fat as grease, but I delight in Jesus.
71 It is good for me that I have been afflicted, that I might learn about Jesus.
72 Jesus is better for me than thousands of gold and silver.
