Discussion for Psalms 119:113

  • 119vs 113, I hate vain thoughts. The Hebrew meaning of vain thoughts is divided mind, skeptic thought. One of the reasons that David loved God's law was there were no contradictions. God's law is perfect. God's law does not divide the mind. Isa. 28:10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, and there a little. That is commandment upon commandment and the line upon line is the cord that connects everything together, or harmonizes everything.
