Psalm 22 is very special because part of it is actual prophecy about Jesus’s passion and death. This psalm is attributed to David who was not only king, but a prophet 1000 years before Jesus was born. The first two parts of the psalm are the prayer of an innocent person (Jesus) in anguish.  Example verse 15…

Like water my life drains away;

all my bones are disjointed.

My heart has become like wax,

it melts away within me.

The third part praises the LORD and that is where this entry about the Holy Name comes from: Psalm 22: 23-24 Then I will proclaim Your Name to the assembly; in the community I will praise You: “You who fear the LORD, give praise! All descendants of Jacob, give honor; show reverence, all descendants of Israel!”
