Bible commentary

Discussion for Psalms 119:69

  • My thoughts went immediately to 1 Peter 2:20 For what glory is it, if when being buffeted for your faults, you take it patiently? But if when you do well, and you suffer for it, and you take it patiently, this is acceptable with God. David was no stranger to unjust accusations and neither will the practicing Christian, who openly share his faith. They that live godly will suffer persecution. David demonstrated the right response under the attack of liars. He simply trusted God and went on living and seeking God. A pastor years ago was facing all sorts of lies. When asked of his wife, aren 't you going to defend yourself, he replied, "I will live my life in such a way that no one will believe what 's being said about me. "
