Discussion for Psalms 119:109

  • The Septuagint renders this verse, "My soul is always in Thy hands", which seems to make sense. I think of Job 1:8- 10, When Satan says to God, vs 10a. Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house. Satan could go no further than the Lord would allow. As a result of being in God's hands, David could rest as he read God's law and found strength in His promises.
  • Once save always save not true this scripture prove it all
