All Scripture speaks of Jesus—even the Old Testament, which testified of Him before His visit to this earth (see John 5:39). This is the third of a series in which we’ve looked for Jesus in Psalm 119 by applying His name in its verses wherever possible. This section has verses 73 to 88:
73 Your hands have made me and fashioned me, give me understanding that I may learn about Jesus.
74 Those who respect You will be glad when they see me, for I have hoped in Jesus.
75 I know, O Lord, that Jesus is right, and that You in faithfulness have afflicted me.
76 I pray You, let Your merciful kindness comfort me through Jesus.
77 Let Your tender mercies come to me that I may live, for Jesus is my delight.
78 Let the proud be ashamed, for they wronged me without a cause ‑‑ but I will meditate in Jesus.
79 Let those who respect You turn to me, and those who have known Jesus.
80 Let my heart be secure in Jesus so I will not be ashamed.
81 My soul faints for Your salvation, but I hope in Jesus.
82 My eyes are growing weary for Jesus, saying, When will You comfort me?
83 I am become like a bottle in the smoke, yet I do not forget Jesus.
84 How many days are left to Your servant? When will You execute judgment on those who persecute me?
85 The proud have dug pits for me, those who do not follow Jesus.
86 Jesus is faithful; they persecute me wrongfully ‑‑ help me!
87 They had almost eaten me alive, but I did not forsake Jesus.
88 Give me life through Your lovingkindness, so I will trust in Jesus.
