God's Word for Tuesday, 8/25/2020

Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.
Psalm 119:165 KJV

(M)y awe at your words keeps me stable. I’m ecstatic over what you say, like one who strikes it rich. I hate lies—can’t stand them!— but I love what you have revealed. Seven times each day I stop and shout praises for the way you keep everything running right. For those who love what you reveal, everything fits— no stumbling around in the dark for them. I wait expectantly for your salvation; God, I do what you tell me. My soul guards and keeps all your instructions— oh, how much I love them! I follow your directions, abide by your counsel; my life’s an open book before you.

Psalm 119:165 MSG

I find myself falling short here, because there are things that offend me. But perhaps I don't completely understand about nothing shall offend them.

Thank you for this, Reverend.

Linda, the language of King James uses the word differently from our modern version. It means that nothing shall be a stumbling block for us. :)

Thank you for the clarification, Reverend. :)
