A Time to Act: Studying Tehillim: Chapter 119 (verses of Ayin)

The violation of Hashem’s Torah, calls King David to action. As in the verse prior, he plead for intuition to respond appropriately, for at times, inaction and restrain are more efficacious. Alternatively, it is the sinful or circumstantial violation of the Torah that necessitates its temporary abrogation to act boldly for Hashem. Acting thusly may only be justified in the greatest emergencies, and is a fraught endeavour. Finally, the notion of acting only at times, when the luxury of time is readily available, is identified as paradigmatic of insufficient commitment. (Psalm 119, verses 126)
