Deceitful Diggings. Faithfulness Trumps Falsity : Studying Tehillim: Chapter 119 (verses of Chaf, part 3)

The lyrical leader’s enemies destructively dug traps; yet his faithfulness fortified him throughout. With multiple metaphoric meanings of layered language exposed, we’re privy to the depraved depths David’s detractors sank; ever deviously and deceitfully discrediting him. Our melodious monarch’s prophetic poetry resonates in personal struggles, yet in these sacred words, our Sages also saw allusion to our historical travails and triumph; fully reflective of our unique saga of survival despite the genocidal attempts of our hateful foes over the ages. (Psalm 119, verses 85-88)
Kaf, Psalms
