Bible commentary

Discussion for Psalms 119:5

  • Man is born into this world with a fallen nature. On top of that he has the world system to deal with and a enemy called Satan with all his demons. to walk worthy doesn 't happen by accident. In this verse we see a believer in God who recognizes that struggle and desires to have a pure walk. That very desire to walk worthy with God only comes through the Spirit of God. An unregenerate man has no care about God.
