Psalm 119:2-16 – BETH

Lately, I’m finding comfort in the Book of Psalms.

Psalm 119 is the longest Psalm and chapter in the Bible. My twentieth favorite Psalm. (wink)

Psalm 119 is a repetitive meditation of God’s Word using the Hebrew alphabet for the twenty-two sections, eight lines each.

BETH
9 Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.
10 With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.
11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
12 Blessed art thou, O LORD: teach me thy statutes.


13 With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth.
14 I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as much as in all riches.
15 I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.
16 I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.
~ Psalm 119:2-16 ~

God’s Word

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
~ Isaiah 40:31~

Hello friends. (smile) It’s a beautiful thing to know where to find comfort in God’s Word regardless of where we are in life. (smile)

It’s a beautiful thing when God’s Word gives strength to keep moving forward.

It’s a beautiful thing to know God’s Word for ourselves.

Instead of speaking idle, faithless words, speak words that give life to our weary bones and situations. (smile) Praise The Lord!
