Discussion for Psalms 119:40

  • Mike D on Psalms 119:40
    Over and over again David declares his love for God 's law. It wasn 't enough for David just to know the law but to walk towards perfection in it. A simple reading of this Psalm alone shows this. The second part of this verse is key though. Quicken me in your righteousness. David knew God had a righteousness unattainable by human effort so he prayed, quicken me, bring me to life, revive me, for that 's the only way God 's righteousness will be mine. Titus 3:5n Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing of regeneration. There it is, to make alive.
