Introduction to Psalm 119
Thoughts are from Spurgeon's Treasury of David
This psalm shines and shows itself among the rest as a star in the firmament of the psalms and as one of the first and greatest of magnitude.
It is called the Alphabet of Divine Love, the Paradise of all Doctrines, the Storehouse of the Holy Spirit, the School of Truth, the mystery of all the Scriptures.
Matthew Henry's father. Philip Henry, advised him to take a verse of this psalm every morning to meditate upon, and so go over the psalm twice in the year. and that he said, will bring you to be in love with all the rest of the Scriptures. All grace grows as love of the Word of God grows.
The psalm is alphabetical. Eight stanza commence with one letter and then another eight with the next letter through the twenty-two letters of the Hebrew alphabet.Posted by Sister Florence
