Wesley's Notes for Psalms 119:9


119:9 A young man - Or, any man. But he names the young man, because such are commonly void of wisdom and experience, and exposed to many and great temptations. Cleanse - Purge himself from all filthiness of flesh and spirit.

    Remembering His way isnted confusion. I get attacked with the thought of or the devil saying that we have every thing backwards and we're being tricked that Jesus is not the son but a bad spirit made to keep us from the kingdom.does any one else get attacked like this in not stating that I believe this I just want to no if others get attacked the same way . If I offened any I mentioned no disrespect

    While the Bible evokes admiration by it's wise advice rhythmic verse, fascinating stories and profound concepts, none of them alone compel us to change our lives. It's greatest feature is in expectation of obedience. This constitutes the major difference from all other writings. We cannot read just for enjoyment; it must alter the course of our lives. Unless it is obeyed, we read it in vain.
