Discussion for Psalms 119:54

  • I believe David knew that his life was temporal and as the writer of Hebrews stated in Heb: 11:13 he was just a pilgrim on earth passing through. Having an understanding heaven is the next stop sure helps one deal with the momentary light afflictions, as Paul wrote of. The natural affect that will occur is songs of praise to God, which you see David doing in this verse.
