One Bible scholar calls it “a giant among the psalms.”
The Prince of Preachers, Charles Haddon Spurgeon, devoted 349 pages to this psalm in his Treasury of David.
A Puritan preacher named Thomas Manton wrote three volumes on this psalm, a total of 1,677 pages.
Have you guessed which one? It’s the longest chapter in the Bible with 176 verses and 315 lines. The most striking feature of Psalm 119 is that every verse refers to the word of God with only a few exceptions. The entire psalm drips with King David’s passion for God’s word.
Do you love God’s word? Do you love it enough to live by the Book of all Books?
