Royally Sworn In: Studying Tehillim: Chapter 119 (verses of Nun)

Seeking to intensify his observance, King David swore and made an oath to G-d to uphold and safeguard the Torah and its ordinances. But why swear on something you're already obligated to do, furthermore does such an oath even have any meaning? Remarkably, the Talmud itself seems to seek clarification on the same issues. Delving into its commentaries, a remarkably intricate tapestry of illumination is woven, as our appreciation of Kings David's extraordinary commitment, and ultimate loyalty becomes a source of guidance and inspiration for every Jew! (Psalm 119, verses 106)
