Tehillim / Psalms 119, ספר תהילים קיט, Part 2, Do We Believe in Something that is Contrary to Scripture?

by

Throughout Tehillim / Psalms 119, the word Torah (תורה) is used 25 times and is a reference to both the books of Moshe and to teaching or instruction. The basic conclusion is that the Torah is not just for academic interest, but for obedience. The word Testimonies (עֵדֹתָיו) is used 10 times meaning “to bear witness (testimonies).” This directs us to obey God’s Word as bearing God’s testimonies in our lives. The word Way (בִּדְרָכָיו) is used 7 times referring to the way the Lord wants us to walk in His was as opposed to our own ways. (see 119:5, 26, 29, 59, 168). The word Precepts (פִקֻּדֶיךָ) is used 21 times meaning to inspect or enumerate directing us to pay particular attention to the instruction of the Lord as one who cares about the details. The word Statutes (חֻקֶּיךָ) is used 22 times meaning to “the binding force and permanence of God’s commands.” The word Commandments (מִצְוֹתֶיךָ) is used 22 times meaning “the authority of God’s Word” providing us with the written explanation of the righteousness of God for our lives. The word Judgments (מִשְׁפְּטֵי) is used 23 times giving us the idea of justice as a part of the character of God and His people. The Lord will bring justice to our lives and repay those who hurt us. The Word (כִּדְבָרֶךָ) is used 23 times and is a reference to the spoken word of God to His people. This word is derived from the verb “to say” and has the nuance of of the promises of God for His people. The word Faithfulness (אֱמוּנָתֶךָ) is cited in Tehillim / Psalms as faithfulness (119:90), righteousness (119:40), and as name (119:132).
