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!


Psalm 119:17-24

17  Deal bountifully with your servant, that I may live and keep your word. 

18  Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law. 

19  I am a sojourner on the earth; hide not your commandments from me! 

20  My soul is consumed with longing for your rules at all times. 

21  You rebuke the insolent, accursed ones, who wander from your commandments. 

22  Take away from me scorn and contempt, for I have kept your testimonies. 

23  Even though princes sit plotting against me, your servant will meditate on your statutes. 

24  Your testimonies are my delight; they are my counselors.
