Discussion for Psalms 119:98

  • Psalms 119:98,99,100 are linked together. At first reading these might seem to be a statement of pride, however they are far from pride but rather these verses state he is more approved. In verse 98 David attributes the fact he is better off because of his understanding of God's law because out of it comes his disciplines of life and the riches that go along with knowing God intimately. Those who do not know God will have no understanding what a life knowing Him would be like, hence they will flounder at best in their understanding of life.
