Psalm 119 emphasizes the importance of the Word of God. Throughout the author talks about God’s Word, His precepts. The definition of a precept is a guiding principle or rule that is used to control, influence or regulate conduct. An example of a precept is a commandment found in the Ten Commandments.
The letter Vav is the sixth letter of the Aleph-Bet, having the numeric value of six. The word “vav” means a “hook,” “spear,” or “tent peg” in Hebrew, therefore the name and shape of the letter are directly connected to this meaning.
Just as the tabernacle was the habitation of God while the Israelites traveled in the wilderness, so the Torah is the habitation of His word today for the Jewish people, and for the Believer it is the Word of God.Vav 41 May Your unfailing love find me,
41 May Your favor also come to me, Lord,
Your salvation according to Your word;
42 So that I will have an answer for one who taunts me,
For I trust in Your word.
43 And do not take the word of truth utterly out of my mouth,
For I wait for Your judgments.
44 So I will keep Your Law continually,
Forever and ever.
45 And I will walk at liberty,
For I seek Your precepts.
46 I will also speak of Your testimonies before kings
And shall not be ashamed.
47 I will delight in Your commandments,
Which I love.
48 And I shall lift up my hands to Your commandments,
Which I love;
And I will meditate on Your statutes.
In His Service,
Minister A. Francine Green
