Despising vacillation and irresoluteness in one’s value system, King David’s righteous rejection of malfunctioning moral compasses is contrasted with his love of the truth and embrace of Torah-true virtues. Careful analyses of the Hebrew etymology of the biblical syntax leads us into a profound understanding about David’s declaration of uncompromising, singular loyalty in the nature of his devotion towards Hashem. Multiple layers of inspirational ideas, lessons and teachings – all tucked in the folds of this remarkable verse – are beautifully presented here. (Psalm 119, verses 113)

Employing unique verbiage the Royal psalmist pours his heart out before the creator. Yet the precise definition of his exquisite prophetic poetry remains elusive. Following two primary schools of thought that spring from the well of classic commentary; this class provides a duality of mind-expanding meaning. Although clearly reflective of the king's own personal experiences, his incredible faith and trust in G-d as well as deep-seated yearning for true spiritual fulfilment becomes an inspiration and priceless legacy for us all!

The classic commentaries may differ as to how uniquely reflective of King David's own reality these prayers were, but everyone can agree that they serve to uplift and inspire.

By describing G-d’s “punishment for Torah abandonment,” King David explains previous pleading for divine intervention. Unique verbiage of heavenly “trampling” becomes a central point of departure –as we discover the protagonist earning the Psalmist’s ire. Clearly, the subject is those masquerading with false piety; essentially two-faced fakers who excel at corruption, misrepresentation and wilful deceit that's become their way of life. Ultimately, it is only through immersion in Torah that we can ensure full integrity and honesty in our service to G-d. (Psalm 119, verses 118-119)

Stating that his very flesh “shudders” in fear of HaShem and His judgements, King David describes the extraordinary blend of awe, dread, reverence and respect he exhibited towards Heaven. Some of the commentaries see this as a clear contrast with two-faced fakers, previously alluded to. Methodical analysis of unusually “tough as nails” terminology serves to clarify graphic descriptions of fear employed, which leads us back into an enlightening rumination on the importance of the role played by Fear vs. Love is our labor-intensive service to G-d. (Psalm 119, verses 120)
