Discussion for Psalms 119:42

  • Verse 42 to is a continuation of thought of verse 41.David had cried out to for God 's salvation. David knew when God intervened in the troubles of men that it silences the mouths of our critics. We have a beautiful picture in the New Testament. In John 9 we have a story of a blind man who Jesus gave sight. Weary of all the questions of the Pharisees and doubts about how it was done and whether Jesus, who they already decided couldn 't be of God, because Jesus did this miracle on the Sabbath, this former blind man silences these Pharisees. vs. 31-33 Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God and doeth his will, him he heareth. vs. 32 Since the world began was it not heard that any opened the eyes of one born blind. Conclusion, If this man were not of God, he could do nothing. End of discussion!
