But why is Psalm 119 so long? What makes Psalm 119 so robust and special?
On Monday night during our online Bible study Zoom chat, we began the process of dissecting this skillfully written masterpiece and try to uncover some of its hidden jewels of revelation.
I felt like my head was going to explode even as we talked about just the first 16 verses!
God's Word is so precious.
No wonder this psalmist felt it necessary to write 176 verses that give glory to God for the excellencies of His Word!
1. Psalm 119 is written in the style of an acrostic poem.
2. Psalm 119 is divided up into 22 sections, each section representing a letter of the Hebrew Alphabet.
3. Each of the 22 sections of Psalm 119 has exactly 8 verses, and in the Hebrew, each verse starts with the Hebrew letter it is assigned.
4. The Hebrew alphabet is pictographic in nature so each letter represents something profound that we can glean revelation from!
5. Because the entire theme of Psalm 119 is to glorify God for His excellent WORD, there are eight unique Hebrew words used to describe the Scriptures.
