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

Verses 153 – 160

“Consider mine affliction, and deliver me…Plead my cause…quicken me according to they word.  Salvation is far from the wicked; for they seek not thy statutes.  Great are thy tender mercies…I do not decline from thy testimonies. I beheld the  transgressors, and was grieved…Consider how I love thy precepts…Thy word is true from the beginning; and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.”

The psalmist is troubled by his assailants who kept not the Word, affliction arises, but he looks to God with His compassion to deliver and revive him; he loves His Word  which is true.  The Word continues unshaken and immovable through the ages.  (Exposition of Psalms, p. 856)
