97 O how I alove Your law!

It is my bmeditation all the day.

98   Your acommandments make me wiser than my enemies,

For they are ever 1mine.

99   I have more insight than all my teachers,

For Your testimonies are my ameditation.

100  I understand amore than the aged,

Because I have bobserved Your precepts.

101  I have arestrained my feet from every evil way,

That I may keep Your word.

102   I have not aturned aside from Your ordinances,

For You Yourself have taught me.

103  How asweet are Your 1words to my 2taste!

Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

104  From Your precepts I aget understanding;

Therefore I bhate every false way. [1]

Loving the Lord and meditating on His Word will:

  1. Draw us closer to Him.
  2. Give us understanding and wisdom.
  3. Make us desire to be close to Jesus.
  4. Will prevent us from walking in the ways of the wicked because we will hate that which is evil.

This Psalm contains a very basic outline for how we should walk as followers of Christ. By putting Jesus first and truly studying His Word, it will make us grow in our life to the point to where we hate every sinful desire, thought, and temptations that come before us. It will teach us to be holy and be an example to those who are without Christ.
