Meditations in the Psalms

October 27th

Psalm 119:41-48

The Hebrew letter vav looks like a shepherd’s staff, and serves as a conjunction in Hebrew, usually translated with the simple word “and.” Once again, every verse in this section begins with a word whose first letter is the vav. Verse 47 refers to the Lord’s “commandments” as that which the psalmist has “loved.” A good question to ask yourself is, “Do I really love God’s Word?” The psalmist gives several reasons why it is so important to do so:

  1. To proclaim God’s mercies and salvation – verse 41
  2. To provide answers to all who reproach us – verse 42
  3. To produce assurance – verse 43
  4. To promise liberty – verse 45
  5. To promote boldness – verse 46

In verses 44, 47, and 48, there are three responses to those who love God’s Word: dedication (v. 44), delight (v. 47), and dependency (v. 48). May God’s Word become a great joy to your heart this day!
