Welcome to week 9 of the Long Song Study which is based on Psalm 119 and the Hebrew Aleph-Bet. We are on the letter “I” this week. If you’re new here, I invite you to scroll back to the beginning of this journey.
Along with the Psalmist let’s pray: “Teach me, O Lord.”
I know You are good to me, Lord;
Your word tells it just like it is.
Instruct me to learn and discern,
for I take in all that You say.
In the past I wandered away,
but trouble taught me to obey.
Indeed, You and Your acts are good.
Keep teaching me, I want to learn.
Insolent liars attack me,
yet I hold on tight to Your truth.
Inside, their hearts are hard and cold;
Your law keeps my heart soft and warm.
It was good for me to suffer;
it caused me to pay attention.
Incredibly dear are Your words,
they are better than piles of cash.
