Discussion for Psalms 119:80

  • David says, let my heart be sound, or better interpreted perfect. He wanted only on his mind things that would honor God. No one who is pure of thought would have reason to be ashamed. Paul, in his epistle to the Philippians wrote 4:8, finally brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report: if there be any virtue, if there be any praise, think on these things. Perhaps Paul had Psalms 119 80 in mind when he penned these words.
