A Look at God's Word, Conclusion

If you are interested in going through the whole Psalm 119 study, look at our new page: Bible Studies and you will find links to each individual day.


I have greatly enjoyed going through Psalm 119 part-by-part and really reading through the verses. I pray that God has used it in your life as well. Before I post the answers to all of the "Questions to Ponder," I wanted to add a few extra comments of things I noticed.

~Almost all of the verses in Psalm 119 talk specifically about God's Word. In fact, I only found four verses that did not mention God's Word in one form or another: Psalm 119: 90, 121, 122, 132.
