Having been in Psalm 119 for some time we know a few things: The psalm is divided in sections of eight verses, each starting with the same letter in the Hebrew alphabet. Ninety-nine percent of the verses have a direct reference to the Bible. The word “your” is used very often, showing us the Bible is what God says to us. We have also word “you” which shows us that the author is talking to God (i.e. praying). The other word we see are the words “I,” “me” and “my,” which means it is a book meant for … me. In the section called “Mem,” we see the Bible is helpful for getting something very useful: wisdom. That will be our particular motivation for what we need to learn: Just read it!
An exposition of Psalm 119 by the elders of Brackenhurst Baptist Church.
“Love springs from faith, and without faith’s union with Christ love cannot begin to grow.” (Francis Foulkes)
“I wish there were not so many instances in the present day to prove that Paul’s admonition, to love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity, is as necessary as ever.” (John Calvin)
