Psalm 119:9-16 – Beth

Each of the 8 verses in all 22 sections of Psalm 119 [I used the ESV version] begins with the next sequential letter of the Hebrew alphabet.  It wasn’t until I decided to visually verify that for myself that I realized Hebrew is read from right to left.  God’s truth is worth thinking about and His Word is more than historical documentation.  The Word has survived all these centuries because it’s proved to be application beyond time for followers of Jesus Christ.

Beth
9 How can a young man keep his way pure?  By guarding it according to your word.
9 You word is the guard that can keep a young man’s way pure
10 With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments!
10 Your commandments keep me from wandering so with my whole heart I will seek you
11 I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you
11 My heart might not sin against you because your word is stored there.
12 Blessed are you, O Lord; teach me your statutes!
12 Your statues teach me how blessed you are, O Lord
13 With my lips I declare all the rules of your mouth.
13 The rules of your mouth are all l will with declare with my lips
14 In the way of your testimonies I delight as much as in all riches.
14 I delight as much as in all riches in the way of your testimonies
15 I will meditate on your precepts and fix my eyes on your ways.
15 Fix my eyes on your ways so I will meditate on your precepts
16 I will delight in your statutes; I will not forget your word
16 I will not forget your word and I will delight in your statutes!
