Let your steadfast love come to me, O LORD, your salvation according to your promise; then shall I have an answer for him who taunts me, for I trust in your word.
And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth, for my hope is in your rules.
I will keep your law continually, forever and ever, and I shall walk in a wide place, for I have sought your precepts. I will also speak of your testimonies before kings and shall not be put to shame, for I find my delight in your commandments, which I love. I will lift up my hands toward your commandments, which I love, and I will meditate on your statutes.
The phrase that comes to mind as I let this stanza soak into my being is that it is it is a “Paean of Phrase.” Read it gently, slowly, then with passion chewing on each word and on others with similar meanings. Read it as you drop off at night so it will color your dreams.
Will Waw form a pattern in you as you approach each stanza of the 119th?
