In this lesson, we learn the necessity for the Author of the Bible to teach us His word. Then we may discover the “sweetness” of the word of God and will discern and discard that which is false.
Verses 89 to 105 are perhaps the heart of Psalm 119. In the portion under consideration in this lesson, superior wisdom and discernment are the result of the word of God. The Scriptures are the personal of God Himself to the believer, and result in a superior intellectual and moral life.
Psalm 119 assures us that the Bible is a book with heavenly origin. As such, it is “settled” and certain. We should love the word of God as we love the God of the word.
Enemies are resisted as we “wait” for the word of God (Ps. 119:81). Revival of soul and spirit follow faith in the words of Scripture (Ps. 119:88)
Psalm 119 is all about the value and power of the word of God! In this study, discover the purpose of afflictions in your life, as revealed by the Scriptures.
God comforts His people by His word. In this portion of Psalm 119 we observe that the comfort of answered prayer is coupled with obedience to the will of God revealed in the Scriptures.
Psalm 119 tells us that obedience to the word of God brings us freedom from the bondage of sin. The Scriptures give us comfort in affliction.
Psalm 119 is all about the importance of the word of God. In these two sections we learn about the blessings of, and values taught, by the Bible.
Psalm 119, the longest of the Psalms, is written in 22 sections of 8 verses each, each verse in a given section beginning with a successive letter of the Hebrew alphabet. The Psalm speaks about the word of God.
Returning to Psalm 19, we discover a second means of revelation: God’s written or inspired revelation of Himself to men. We call this the Bible. In John chapter 1, the third means by which God has revealed Himself is found: the Incarnate Word, Jesus Christ.
