Psalm 119:122 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Be surety for thy servant - ערב arob, give a pledge or token that thou wilt help me in times of necessity. Or, Be bail for thy servant. What a word is this! Pledge thyself for me, that thou wilt produce me safely at the judgment of the great day. Then sustain and keep me blameless till the coming of Christ. Neither of these two verses has any of the ten words in reference to God's law or attributes. The judgment and the justice refer to the psalmist's own conduct in Psalm 119:121. The hundred and twenty-second has no word of the kind.

Because of this oath, Jesus has become the guarantor of a better covenant.
"Give me, O God, the pledge you demand. Who else will put up security for me?
Give me a sign of your goodness, that my enemies may see it and be put to shame, for you, LORD, have helped me and comforted me.
Redeem me from human oppression, that I may obey your precepts.
I cried like a swift or thrush, I moaned like a mourning dove. My eyes grew weak as I looked to the heavens. I am being threatened; Lord, come to my aid!"
