Psalm 119 Teth vs. 65-72
You have dealt well with your servant,
O LORD, according to your word.
Teach me good judgment and knowledge,
for I believe in your commandments.
Before I was afflicted I went astray,
but now I keep your word.
You are good and do good;
teach me your statutes.
The insolent smear me with lies,
but with my whole heart I keep your precepts;
their heart is unfeeling like fat,
but I delight in your law.
It is good for me that I was afflicted,
that I might learn your statutes.
The law of your mouth is better to me
than thousands of gold and silver pieces.
God’s Word is good. It accomplishes what it says. It is truth and for that we can trust in it. David has looked about and found God’s Word to be good. Then he says, “teach me…” We look for those who seem good, knowledgeable and whose word is good; whose word does what it says it will. When we find this knowledge source we are willing to pay great sums of money for it. And God’s word is made available daily to us. Do we appreciate what we have? Do we make good use of it? Do we say with David, “teach me…”?
