Bible commentary

Discussion for Psalms 119:58

  • This shows David 's humility, bowing the knee and the heart before God, asking 1.for God 's favor and 2. for God 's mercy. We all come to God as sinners knowing we have no favor of God but we find the favor of God through His Son. As David did, we cry out for mercy, and we find that also comes to us through His Son. David knew God was Holy and His word was true, which gave David and us great hope. Those who study God 's word will also find comfort there.
