Bible commentary

Discussion for Psalms 119:117

  • This seems similar to the last verse. David is again acknowledging his dependency on God to hold him up. Then I shall be safe, or better, saved. This is, like last verse, temporal and eternal salvation in David's mind. Then I will have respect unto thy statutes continually, or better said, Your word is the apple of my eye.
