If you have never read Psalm 119 in one sitting, you are missing out on a great blessing.
Growing up, and for all of my adult life, I have read Psalm 119 little by little.
Sometimes a little everyday, or a little every week.
About Psalm 119
Psalm 119 is the longest chapter in the Bible, made up of 176 verses.
It is divided into 22 stanzas, or small portions, and each stanza is named after each of the letters of the Hebrew alphabet.
The style begins with short statements about God’s Law and the writer’s love for God’s law, before getting to the 8th stanza, Heth.
At Heth, the style of writing changes to become more like what we’re used to reading in the Psalms.
The style becomes more of a prayer until the 13th stanza Mem, which is more like the first 7, and then in the 9th stanza Nun until the end, the Psalm becomes more like a prayer once again.
What stood out to me about Psalm 119, while reading all 176 verses in one sitting, is how much the writer loves God’s Word.
Most of us know a small handful of verses about hiding God’s Word in our heart and how it is a lamp and light for our feet.
But if you’ve never sat down to read the Psalm from start to finish in one sitting, it will convict you powerfully.
