Bible commentary

Discussion for Psalms 119:76

  • In vs. 75 we see David is going through the discipline of the Lord. His response is a correct one that we all need to take heed . He turns his back on the wrong way and aligns his way with God. That 's called repentance. He is incurring affliction which painful, but he calls good. In vs. 76 77 David is making petition to God for mercy. Though our sin is forgiven there are still consequences that linger. David is trusting in the Lord for the strength to bear up under these afflictions. His comfort is in God 's word. We find that same comfort in verses like 1John 1:9. If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
  • An outstanding way in which Jehovah comforts his people is by giving them exhortation and guidance.
