Discussion for Psalms 119:34

  • Mike D on Psalms 119:34
    This is a continuation of the thoughts from verse 33. In vs. 33 David asked God to be his personal teacher of His word. In this verse he is pleading for clear understanding so as to implement it into his life. He goes on to say, I will keep it, that is , I will obey it 's instructions, but he goes even further when he states, with my whole heart. That is an unwavering faith in spite of what may comes into his life. David would never have been happy to just warm a pew had he lived in our day.
