Discussion for Psalms 119:57

  • Jesus asked a question in Matthew 16 26, for what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his soul?, or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? It is said that every man has his price. David is one who proved that statement a lie. In this verse David draws the line and states, God is his portion, In other words, He is where all my desires and affections are. There is no room left, for God has filled the room. His commitment follows and that 's to keep God 's word at all cost.
