Psalm 119 excels all the other Psalms. This feat of artistry is a literary monument of the Word of Truth. A thread which runs right through the poem’s rich tapestry is an appreciation of the value of God’s revelation. It is sweeter than honey (Vs. 103) and better than money. The Word of God is the writer’s delight and desire. It evokes his praise and his love.
Because he sets such store by the Word, he turns to the One who gave it, appealing in his time of trouble to God’s character and promises. Yet he is mature enough to realize that there is spiritual value in suffering and that it is God’s school. He recognizes the obligation to stay loyal to God through thick or thin, and he reports that despite intense persecution and harassment he has not let his LORD down.
God’s word is a lamp to his feet. He rejoices that it has sustained him in the past and been a source of hope and comfort, of practical wisdom, and a satisfying life. It is the basis of his hope for the future. He commends a life of trust and obedience, yearning that others may tread this path.
