Psalm 119

“Psalm 119 reveals a psalmist who, though protesting that he is innocent before the accusations of enemies, is well aware of past sinfulness and admits this before God. Sin is dealt with by closer attention to the Torah, placing it within one’s heart and experiencing it within one’s life. This is only possible through the direct intervention of Yahweh.”—A Severe Mercy, page 407
