Blessed are they who keep his statutes
and seek him with all their heart. (NIV)
Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.(KJV)
How blessed are those who observe His testimonies,
Who seek Him with all their heart. (NASB)
It is obedience to His testimonies that counts-not a reluctant, half- hearted, feet-dragging obedience, but a deep, enormous desire to please Him with the whole heart!
MacDonald, William ; Farstad, Arthur: Believer's Bible Commentary : Old and New Testaments. Nashville : Thomas Nelson, 1997, c1995, S. Ps 119:2
Psalm 119 is an acrostic poem.
Each paragraph of the psalm begins with a successive letter of the Hebrew alphabet. This poem is the longest psalm in the Book of Psalms, as well as the longest chapter in the Bible. This hymn of praise magnifies and extols the Word of God. Various terms used for the Law of the Lord include "word" (v. 9), "testimonies" (v. 46), "precepts" (v. 28), "statutes" (v. 33), "commandments" (v. 60), and "judgments" (v. 102). Those who obey God's Law experience His blessing and are protected from sin (v. 11; see Matt. 4:1-11). God's Word stands forever (Ps. 119:89; see Is. 40:8; 1 Pet. 1:24, 25), providing light and guidance through life (see John 8:12).
