This portion of Psalm 119 is very rich and touches on a wide variety of themes. This particular sermon focuses mainly on the experience of persecution that the psalmist (David?) frequently mentions. Scott widens the discussion to the persecution of the saints through the ages and what Scripture promises. The last part of the message explores some of the things we see in these verses regarding how the psalmist coped with his afflictions. Throughout the message there are some important side notes about revival, the Gospel and the importance of new birth. There a strong pleading at the end to those who do not have assurance of salvation in light of the brevity of life in the body.
