Part 18

Read these verses in their entirety, meditate, praise His Word!

Verses 137 – 144

“Righteous art thou, O Lord, and upright are thy judgments.  Thy testimonies…are righteous and very faithful.  My zeal hath consumed me…Thy word is very pure…thy servant loveth it.  Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth.  Trouble and anguish have taken hold on me; yet thy commandments are my delights…give me understanding, and I shall live.”

The Lord is righteous, His Word is righteous, faithful, pure, tried, perfect, unalterable, everlasting and His law is the truth. This commands the psalmist’s zeal, love and reverence for His Word and knowledge.  Enemies pursue  him, yet he is comforted in God’s righteous laws; he prays for full and deep understanding for survival.  Loving God and His Word in the face of affliction – yes, we can do it!
