The Longest Chapter of the Bible, Part 1

Is it not by divine design that the longest chapter in the Bible is about the Bible? Eight different Hebrew terms are used repeatedly in Psalms 119 to underscore the beauty, power and benefits of the Holy Book. The first four of the Hebrew terms are: 1) DEREK (“way”) in verse 1: God’s course of life. 2) TORAH (“law”) in verse 1: direction or instruction that teaches the truth about God; God-given guidelines for life and living. 3) EDAH (“testimonies”) in verse 2: records that bear witness to the true God. 4) PIQQUD (“precepts”) in verse 4: mandates authorized by God. Pray & Say: LORD, this year, may the Bible be my daily life manual.
