    We see the wicked walking about freely everywhere as verse 8 shows because moral corruptedness is promoted.

    To Mockingbird on 'the pure word of God'. I agree with everything you said. I was a backslider from 1979 to 2014 -- aprox. 34 yrs. and over the last 2 yrs. of that - He gradually brought me back - and I didn't even know it was happening. His MERCY endureth forever........................

    Amen, this is a true verse that everyone should live by everyday but some don't because they are weak and think the world owes them a living !! They owe God their life and pure existence ! ,

    There was a question asked that because God s word says that His word is pure then why is it that not many keep His commandments : reason is that God gave man a free will : It is up to every individual to will to do God's will : God will not force Himself on anyone that does not want to serve Him. A lot of people are happy with just being saved and doing there own pleasures : But they do not have to stay that way : God is still waiting for those that are such. I myself have to make the decision every day that I will seek His face , His word to give me direction : To be able to walk in the pathway that He has already mapped out for me. It is never to late and your never to old or young to be in the will of God !!!

    I don't open my bible at all, yet I can feel the power of God's word. Even saten hears the word and trembles. The word of God is like drinking a cup of cold refreshing water and u can feel refreashing water purefing and sustaing mind body soul. I fear God because he can throw me to hell and yet many take thatfor granted. I can die any day I pray for God's forgivenesd of all my sins thru his son
