Bible commentary

Discussion for Psalms 119:115

  • My mind went to 1 Corinthians 5:10. Here Paul is stating the necessity of engaging the world in which we live, which means we will, at times, be in company of fornicators, covetous, etc. Paul does go on to forbid such contact if those practicing these life styles call themselves Christians. I believe what David is saying here is he did not want anyone around him that would deter him in his walk with God. I believe the line is drawn when the one you are trying to influence is influencing you. At that point it is time to pull back.
  • Theodore S. Jackson for verse 115
