Psalm 119:25-32, ESV
Daleth My soul clings to the dust; give me life according to your word! When I told of my ways, you answered me; teach me your statutes! Make me understand the way of your precepts, and I will meditate on your wondrous works.
My soul melts away for sorrow; strengthen me according to your word! Put false ways far from me and graciously teach me your law!
I have chosen the way of faithfulness; I set your rules before me. I cling to your testimonies, O LORD; let me not be put to shame! I will run in the way of your commandments when you enlarge my heart!
Psalm 119:25-32, JN paraphrase
Ish Elohim, (the man of God, my name for the author of the 119th Psalm) has a passion for using the language of this Psalm to nail his relationship with the LORD, God, the Almighty. Look at that last paragraph. He recognizes the essential steps as he declares the necessity for adsorbing the Word of the LORD, of avoiding any action or statement that would be contrary to his witness, and very importantly, that the strength to walk this path depends upon strength from the LORD. Oh, that my prayer would be likewise.
