18-Lesson Five: Ayin, verses 121-128

The Ayin Stanza, Psalm 119:121-128

"All" and "everything" are very big words! The psalmist unflinchingly employs them both when speaking of God's precepts. Let's talk about this today. 

• In verse 128 the psalmist says, "I esteem right all Your precepts concerning everything." How does this compare with modern thinking? How can we live according to this verse practically?

What is your #hashtag for the Ayin stanza?

How is this stanza changing the way you think and act? It would be great if you can give a specific verse and action. 

Just a reminder to ask God if He'd have you support Precept in reaching the next generation through Equip Boot Camp 2019. You can find more information at the link!

Tip #6—Context, Context, Context

Context is King in Interpretation!

Before you jump to conclusions in Bible interpretation or life, pay attention to context! What is context? It's whatever is around what you're looking at. In Bible study we pay attention not only to particular verses, but to everything that surrounds them in order to get as much information as we can. Check out the video to see how wrong things can go when you ignore context!

Tip #4—Finding the Hebrew Words

The Right Site for the Job

If you're trying to find the Hebrew words that begin each line of Psalm 119, the right website will make all the difference. While you can figure this out using BlueLetterBible.com, an easier alternative for this particular situation is a site called BibleHub.com that features a Hebrew-English interlinear Bible. The how-to video is short (just over 5 minutes) and the process is pretty simple. 

Let me know if you find this helpful!

Blessings,

pam :)
