The Letter Ayin: Royal Justice for All: Studying Tehillim: Chapter 119 (verses of Ayin)

A fascinating overview of meanings encoded in the letter Ayin (especially as it follows Samach) and King David’s repetitive requests, segue into an insightful presentation about the particulars of this verse emphasizing Judaism’s uniquely time-honored virtues of justice and its combination with charity or righteousness. At face value, the Psalmist seems to be nursing unreasonable fears; yet, everything makes perfect sense once the full picture emerges. In fact, it was his exceptional generosity after justice that left him so susceptible to exploitation!
Ayin, Psalms
