As I Understand It 
(Scripture Study)

Psalms 119:33-40 (NIV) 33 Teach me, O LORD, to follow your decrees; then I will keep them to the end.


34 Give me understanding, and I will keep your law and obey it with all my heart.
35 Direct me in the path of your commands, for there I find delight.
36 Turn my heart toward your statutes and not toward selfish gain.
37 Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life according to your word.
38 Fulfill your promise to your servant, so that you may be feared.
39 Take away the disgrace I dread, for your laws are good.
40 How I long for your precepts! Preserve my life in your righteousness.


Verse 33 contains a plea to be taught something of great value.  And the Psalmist continues with seven additional pleas culminating with the summation that he has longed after thy precepts and a final plea to be quickened in righteousness. (As we reckon the stanza to express a complete thought, we go no further.)


Do verses 34-40 identify what the teaching should entail?


If God were to meet these eight petitions for us, what else might we need?
