Psalm 119 is beautifully layered, poetic, and...long.

So, here’s some samples to soothe your taste buds.

Your word, Lord, is eternal;
it stands firm in the heavens.
Your faithfulness continues through all generations;
you established the earth, and it endures.
Your laws endure to this day,
for all things serve you.

verses 89-91

To all perfection I see a limit,
but your commands are boundless.
Oh, how I love your law!
I meditate on it all day long.

verses 96-97

verse 103

Your word is a lamp for my feet,
a light on my path.

verse 105

Because I love your commands
more than gold, more than pure gold,
and because I consider all your precepts right,
I hate every wrong path.

verses 127-128

"Psalm 119 is one long ode to enjoying and knowing God..."
