Psalm 119 – Torah Portion Yitro — 4 Comments

  1. Psalm 119 is the longest chapter in the whole Bible, and I agree with your article that there are many Messianic echoes throughout it. Indeed, Jesus is prophesied in so many places within the Psalms, even though many people don’t realize it. You have made a great presentation of this, will you make more for other wonderful chapters? I certainly hope so!

    • I love the Psalms and yes, there is so much about the Messiah woven throughout them. I hope to write about more of them here, so do come back. Thanks for the comment.

  2. Larry,

    You did a very thorough job in explaining the meaning and importance of Psalm 119 as it appears in the Bible. You take the time to explain the historical importance of this psalm stating that it is not definite who exactly composed it. You also in writing out the full Psalm midway down in the article, (the reader having the opportunity to slowly scroll through it) also highlighted the important original Hebrew words that appear throughout the text.

    I took note of the fact on your “about me” page that you come from a very religious family, your father being a minister as you grew up. There’s also the fact that you, yourself are an ordained minister.

    I praise you for working in the prison system with inmates in helping them understand the importance that religion should play in all of our lives – no matter the individual’s specific denomination that he/she believes in.

    This was an outstanding article that you wrote, Larry. Thank you for sharing it with your readers.


    • Thanks for the encouragement, Jeff. Like so many of the Psalms and other passages, there are jewels in the Hebrew text that are too easy to miss in our English translations. It is amazing to dig into them.
