Oh, How I Love Your Law!

September 06, 2019 — Thomas M. Hochmann

I was going to write a smattering of sentences about how much I cherish my various Bibles and how I spend all my waking hours at night and by day either reading the Bible, or thinking about what I read in it earlier... But, the psalmist said it far more eloquently than I ever could:

Oh how I love your law! 
   It is my meditation all the day... 

I love your commandments above gold, 
   above fine gold... 

My soul keeps your testimonies; 
   I love them exceedingly... 

I rise before dawn and cry for help; 
   I hope in your words. 
My eyes are awake before the watches of the night, 
   that I may meditate on your promise. 

(Psalm 119:97,127,167,147-148 ESV)
