King David concludes the “verses of ‘Tov’ = Goodness” by reflecting on the goodness of affliction and the silver linings it afforded him. We learn to understand the reason that physical privation segues into spiritual success, as in analysing these verses we become privy to David HaMelech’s value system and life's compass. Here, he expresses appreciation for the priceless value of Torah studied in this terrestrial world, which by far eclipses the enormous riches of gold and silver; even in their lofty spiritual iterations. Ultimately, we are taught that this seemingly lofty definition of true goodness can and should be relevant, meaningful and inspirational for every member of Am Yisrael.
