King David's Quid Pro Quo : Studying Tehillim: Chapter 119 (verses of Nun)

Seeking to gratify G-d, King David pleads that his freewill offerings be reciprocated with Torah teachings. To appreciate Rashi's take, we frame his words with the classic commentaries, yet still come up short. Reaching across Scripture for kindred “give-and-take” relationship between ourselves and G-d we encounter a fascinating thesis that clarifies the subject. This all beautifully explains why this is the final verse recited before the sounding of the Shofar, even relating to Rosh Hashanah's Haftorah. We conclude with a rumination on the vows, viability and wisdom! (Psalm 119, verses 108)
