Bible commentary

Discussion for Psalms 119:116

  • I believe we all pray this prayer. Keep me from falling in the trials and temptations of life. Again David acknowledges his total dependency on God, in this life and in the life to come. He ends, don't let me be ashamed of my hope, that would be his trust in God's word.
