Discussion for Psalms 119

  • Ruth
    It's a wonderful piece (just as all God's word is) I learned that there are only 4 verses that are not speaking directly to The Lord. They are verses 1 -3, and verse 115. All others are a prayer to The Lord. Also it is an acrostic of the Hebrew alphabet. There are 22 letters in the alphabet and there are 8 verses for each Hebrew alphabet which equals 176. Just a few things I've learned about it!

    This verse of the day has given just another big hope to trust in God in Jesus name.God was for the old Abraham,Isaac,Jacob,Moses,David and others.He is the same God who promised thought the prophets that he will bring his own tosave the world.He is here now and i thank Him for the promises found in His word for He stands with the promise and fulfills.....Amen

    And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples saith unto him, Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here! And Jesus said unto them, Seest thou these great buildings? For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ and shall deceive many. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. Take heed that no man deceive you. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. See ye not all these things? Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there believe it not. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. I am your sign: The days are at hand, and the effect of every vision. For I am the LORD: I will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall come to pass it shall be no more prolonged: for in your days, O rebellious house, will I say the word, and will perform it, saith the Lord GOD. Verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. There shall none of my words be prolonged any more, but the word which I have spoken shall be done, saith the Lord GOD.

    Though senior in years, much so a child in Christ. I yearn for more of his indwelling spirit, as I work to build my faith, going forward in the Word.
