Discussion for Psalms 119:56

  • This verse is a continuation of thought from vs. 55. In verse 55 we see David remembering the name of the Lord and following by keeping the law. I believe that 's where his comfort came, in the act of obedience to what he knew and did. It is a clear conscience with God that brings comfort to any who are seeking God, to do His will.
