Bible commentary

Discussion for Psalms 119:124

  • David's plea is that God would deal with him in mercy. David knew that he failed miserably short in measuring up to God's righteous standard. Though his heart was after God and that was the dominating characteristic of his life, he still knew the failures in the past. In Psalms 51 we read David's confession to God after committing adultery with Bathsheba and having her husband killed when he said, " I acknowledge my transgressions and my sin is ever before me." There is no one who knows themselves that would dare to ask God to judge me according to my equal righteousness that I share with You, and would not rather fall down on their face and cry our for God's abundant mercy. David finishes the verse asking God, teach me thy statutes. He knew the very capability of understanding God's word was of the mercies of God.
