Much of the language in this psalm in the perfect atonement of Jesus Christ who brings redemption, the forgiveness of sins, and will be the hope for Israel — the people of God in the New Testament and the Old Testament (Romans 9-11). What the people of God earnestly sought for the redemption and the forgiveness of sins, is met fully by Jesus. He is our redeemer. And we look at Jesus who is the author and the perfecter of our faith (Hebrews 12:1). And that is why we should be desperate for Jesus — His presence in our lives, Him revealing himself to us, and even looking in the future of the perfect establishment of His kingdom.
