During our sermon series this month, “The Basics: Building Confidence in the Bible”, we will send out a portion of Psalm 119 to encourage you in building the habit of reading and meditating on God’s word each day. Psalm 119 is broken into 22 sections of 8 verses each, based on the letters of the Hebrew alphabet, which are labeled at the beginning of each section. We hope you enjoy diving into these passages that unearth the riches and benefits of God’s word!
81 My soul longs for your salvation; I hope in your word.
82 My eyes long for your promise; I ask, “When will you comfort me?”
83 For I have become like a wineskin in the smoke, yet I have not forgotten your statutes.
84 How long must your servant endure? When will you judge those who persecute me?
85 The insolent have dug pitfalls for me; they do not live according to your law.
86 All your commandments are sure; they persecute me with falsehood; help me!
87 They have almost made an end of me on earth, but I have not forsaken your precepts.
88 In your steadfast love give me life, that I may keep the testimonies of your mouth.
