Discussion for Psalms 119:72

  • A way to get the mind of David is to imagine you live in a country and the scriptures don 't exist in your language. Then a missionary comes and translates the Bible into your language. For the first time in that country there is a copy of the words of God 's mouth, God breathed scripture. You are finally fortunate enough to get one page of one book. What would be value if you could have the entire Bible? Men have died trying to get this book into the hands of others. It is the Book of all books. Within it lies the salvation for the soul. No other book in the history of man could offer that. With that said, what would it be worth to you? David had it right when he said the riches of the Law far exceed any temporal riches found on this earth.
