Bible commentary

Discussion for Psalms 119:73

  • Let me start by saying David had no problem believing in creation. In other Psalms he made mention of that. David 's view of God was lofty and believed rightly that God being as Great as He is, and was able to speak things into existence, would be worth listening to about the matters concerning life. David now is asking God for understanding of His commandments. It 's one thing to have a copy of them and another to understand them. 1 Cor. 2: 14 shows us that human intellect isn 't enough when coming to God 's word. The Holy Spirit brings understanding, otherwise it is all foolishness. What David asked God for, we all need to ask.
  • Phelean for verse 73
    This verse tells how gracious is He and that we need to stay intact with Him(God) as we were formed by him and all we need to do is to obey His commands
