Discussion for Psalms 119:84

  • David is in despair of life. He 's not asking God how long am I 'm going to live, but rather Lord if you don 't intervene, I have no hope. David is looking for vindication. When wilt Thou execute judgment on them that persecute me? God is good in all that he does, however I believe God is best seen for His good in situations like David 's. There is no hope but in God, and then God shows up!
