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!
153 Look on my affliction and deliver me, for I do not forget your law.
154 Plead my cause and redeem me; give me life according to your promise!
155 Salvation is far from the wicked, for they do not seek your statutes.
156 Great is your mercy, O Lord; give me life according to your rules.
157 Many are my persecutors and my adversaries, but I do not swerve from your testimonies.
158 I look at the faithless with disgust, because they do not keep your commands.
159 Consider how I love your precepts! Give me life according to your steadfast love.
160 The sum of your word is truth, and every one of your righteous rules endures forever.
