The Psalms

Psalm 119:49-56 Zayin: Remember The Word.

There is one thing the saints want the LORD to remember more than anything else- the word. It is the first axiom of all thought and existence, and it is our hope (v. 49). The word gives us life, and it is our comfort in affliction (vv. 50, 52). The proud are those who turn away from the law, and hold the saints in derision (v. 51). In turn, we hold the wicked in indignation (v. 53). Whether on a pilgrimage or in the night season, the statutes of the LORD are our songs (vv. 54-55). When the LORD remembers His word we keep His precepts and His law becomes ours (vv. 49, 56).
