Bible commentary

Discussion for Psalms 119:22

  • The walk of the believer is not an easy for many times what we do is misinterpreted and we end up like the psalmist bearing scorn and contempt from others. It 's bad enough when these are directed to us from unbelievers but it has a intense effect when it comes to us from a brother in the faith. Psalms 55 12-14. The psalmist knew this and prays to God in obvious pain experiencing this very thing. One good thing is revealed in this verse is he is able to come to God with a clean conscience. This is a good lesson for us to take note of. Doing right is not always applauded by those looking on. Never the less doing the right thing is always the best, and we let God sort it out.
