Discussion for Psalms 119:70

  • Mike D on Psalms 119:70
    This verse is a continuation of thoughts from vs.69. In this verse David describe the heart of the wicked as being fat. He acknowledges them as prosperous without discernment. Many times when one lives in pleasure with all this world has to offer, they become dull to the things of God to the point rebellion. They simply have everything they could wish for. One thing that escapes them is the end of it all. Jesus asked the question in Matthew 16: "For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul. " My mind goes to Psalms 73 where Asaph wrote concerning the wicked. In verses 1-12 his eyes were on the wicked and their prosperity. In verses 13-16 he had his eyes on self and his problems, however in verses 17-20 His eyes were fixed on God and His truth. He said I verse 17, " until I went into the sanctuary of God then understood I their end. It 's that understanding that drove David to God when the wicked prospered around him and he experienced trials. The law comforted David.
