Psalm 119 exalts the Word of the Lord

Psalm 119 exalts the Word of the Lord

The benefits of the Word are numerous. “Those who keep His testimonies … do no iniquity” (vv. 2, 3). His statutes prevent shame (v. 6), and sin (v. 11), and can be our song (v. 54). His testimonies bring delight (v. 24). His Word revives (v. 25), strengthens (v. 28), and cleanses (v. 9); brings salvation (v. 41) and mercy (v. 58); gives life (v. 50) and hope (v. 74), and keeps us from straying (v. 67). His commandments give understanding (v. 73). And that is only the beginning!
