Bible commentary

Discussion for Psalms 119:111

  • What David is saying in this verse is, what God has spoke in His law, I have taken ownership of or Your law is my law. There was no compulsion from God on David, but rather David counted is his delight to be immersed in God's law, or as put, it is the rejoicing of my heart. Have you noticed whatever a man finds pleasure in, that becomes what he makes time for. For David, the law was what consumed him.
