“Teach Me, Revive Me”

Blessings folk!

Press on through Psalm 119.

The next stanza.
Give close heed to what the Psalmist is requesting of the Lord.
The actions.
The deeds.
Give close heed to what we learn about the Word.

Psa 119:33-40

Teach me, O LORD, the way of Your statutes,
And I shall observe it to the end.

Give me understanding, that I may observe Your law
And keep it with all my heart.

Make me walk in the path of Your commandments,
For I delight in it.

Incline my heart to Your testimonies
And not to dishonest gain.

Turn away my eyes from looking at vanity,
And revive me in Your ways.

Establish Your word to Your servant,
As that which produces reverence for You.

Turn away my reproach which I dread,
For Your ordinances are good.

Behold, I long for Your precepts;
Revive me through Your righteousness.
