Jesus Knows “How to Succor His People According to Their Infirmities”

Alma 7:11–12

11 And he shall go forth, suffering pains and afflictions and temptations of every kind; and this that the word might be fulfilled which saith he will take upon him the pains and the sicknesses of his people.
12 And he will take upon him death, that he may loose the bands of death which bind his people; and he will take upon him their infirmities, that his bowels may be filled with mercy, according to the flesh, that he may know according to the flesh how to succor his people according to their infirmities.

Elder Jeffrey R. Holland said:

“To succor means ‘to run to.’ I testify that in my fears and in my infirmities the Savior has surely run to me. I will never be able to thank Him enough for such personal kindness and such loving care.”

(“He Hath Filled the Hungry with Good Things,” Ensign, Nov. 1997, 66.)
