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.
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?
