Royally Humbled and Subdued: Studying Tehillim: Chapter 119 (verses of Nun)

Disparate commentaries opine on what King David is expressing: dejection of spirit, profound humbleness, exceedingly painful afflictions or possibly debilitating depression. Yet, regardless of the unique interpretations; clearly he laments circumstances – and pleads with G-d for a new life. This intricate quilt-work of commentary, sews together scholarly insight and heartfelt intuition into the Psalmists extraordinary personal challenges, and ultimately serve to provide inspiration, and even comfort especially for those struggling with sadness and depression! (Psalm 119, verses 107)
