Delight in the Law of the Lord

March 29-30 YP cabin trip 002Delighting in the words of God

Psalm 1:2
But his delight is in the law of the LORD;
and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

from Clarke’s Commentary

But his delight is in the law of the Lord
his will, desire, affection, every motive in his heart,
and every moving principle in his soul,
are on the side of God and his truth.
He takes up the law of the Lord as the rule of his life;
he brings all his actions and affections to this holy standard.
He looketh into the perfect law of liberty;
and is not a forgetful hearer,
but a doer of the word;
and is therefore blessed in his deed.
He not only reads to gain knowledge from the Divine oracles,
but he meditates on what he has read,
feeds on it; and thus receiving the sincere milk of the word,
he grows thereby unto eternal life.
This is not an occasional study to him;
it is his work day and night.
As his heart is in it,
the employment must be frequent,
and the disposition to it perpetual.
