Bible Commentary for Psalms 119:35

Wesley's Notes for Psalms 119:35


119:36 Covetousness - He mentions this in particular, because it is most opposite to God's testimonies, and does most commonly hinder men from receiving his word, and from profiting by it: and because it is most pernicious, as being the root of all evil.

119:37 Vanity - The vain things of this present world, such as riches, honours, pleasures: from beholding them, with desire or affection. Quicken - Make me lively, vigorous and fervent in thy service.


Discussion for Psalms 119:35

  • Mike D on Psalms 119:35
    This shows a strong desire on David 's part to follow God in perfection, even to the point of compulsion. He said make me to go. His delight was having the approval of God so the natural outflow of that kind of life would be obedience at any cost.
  • Mike D on Psalms 119:35
    Following God is not always easy for the path we are on may at times be foggy and distractions my try to pull us off that path. David is asking God to be personally involved to the point of compulsion, make me to go. If it 's left up to me to go in any direction I want, more than likely I will choose the easy way, but when God is involved he opens and closes doors that ultimately causes us to wait on him and seek Him for direction. David said it 's going in God 's direction that he delights. I don 't think it 's necessarily loving the difficult way that brought that delight to David as it was being in the will of God and pleasing Him. That brings joy!
