Oh, how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day. You, through Your commandments, make me wiser than my enemies; For they are ever with me. I have more understanding than all my teachers, For Your testimonies are my meditation. I understand more than the ancients, Because I keep Your precepts.
I have restrained my feet from every evil way, That I may keep Your word. I have not departed from Your judgments, For You Yourself have taught me. How sweet are Your words to my taste, Sweeter than honey to my mouth! Through Your precepts I get understanding; Therefore I hate every false way.
Every time I look at a stanza and think that Ish-el-Eohim cannot top this, he does. And this is a beautiful example. It breaks conveniently into two separate thought patterns: the first focuses on how the Law of the LORD, God, the Almighty influences him constantly throughout the day, the second paragraph focuses on how the sweetness of the Word brings understanding of the Word and hatred of false ways.
Let us focus each day on his analysis and seek to apply it to our lives too.

Morning Psalm 17, Noon Psalm 119:25-32, Evening Psalm 63.
Alternate Reading Plan based on 7 chapters/day from 7 sections of the Scriptures. My groupings are: Genesis-Joshua, Judges to Esther, Job to Song of Solomon, Psalms breaking 119 into convenient sets, Isaiah to Malachi, Matthew to Acts, Romans to Revelation.
Set your own up in convenient groupings as fits your study habits.
I suggest either setting aside a period of the day to read all, or break the readings up into morning, mid-day, and evening series. Both approaches have their advantages, and both will build an awareness of the Bible as a whole over time.
