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.

    "Let my cry come near before thee, O LORD: give me understanding according to thy word." There is no other Glad Tidings than that which was first entrusted to the Saints; and there is no way to make it easier and more comfortable for men, than that which the Lord prescribed; which is "except the corn of wheat go into the ground and die, it abides alone; but if it die, it brings forth much fruit."

    Psalms 119:60 "I made haste,and delayed not to keep thy commandments" V.120"My flesh trembleth for fear of thee, and I am afraid of thy judgments." V 160."Thy word is true from the beginning, and every one of thy righteous judgments endures for ever." Some say"there is scripture that does not pertain to salvation." This lie, leads people away from the verse I have listed here.
