We who are saved are his, because he has bought us with a price (1 Cor. 6:20; 7:23). The price was his precious blood (Romans 5:9; Col. 1:14).

"Save me" is the secondary theme of this section. It means that the psalmist calls to God to do what God has already promised to do--save us. He saves his people from their sins, all of their sins. He is saving us from day to day by his grace, his sufficient grace, which Paul experienced as well as we. He shall also save us in the end and through eternity.

Our knowledge of this comes from our connection with the "precepts" of God--the Bible. Read it! It is our only knowledge for security and comfort, knowing that we have been saved, are being saved, and shall be saved through faith in Christ Jesus.
