“G-d is My Portion”: Royal Choices & Humble Entreaty: Studying Tehillim: Chapter 119 (verses of Chet part 1)

King David now elects to proudly publicize his portion of choice and personal value system—with an eye towards positively inspiring others. Then he humbly pleads for continued spiritual success as he yearns for closeness to Hashem.
