Psalms 119:72

Context

119:72 The law you have revealed is more important to me

than thousands of pieces of gold and silver. 1 

Psalms 119:127

Context

119:127 For this reason 2  I love your commands

more than gold, even purest gold.

Psalms 119:162

Context

119:162 I rejoice in your instructions,

like one who finds much plunder. 3 

1 tn Heb “better to me [is] the law of your mouth than thousands of gold and silver.”

2 tn “For this reason” connects logically with the statement made in v. 126. Because the judgment the psalmist fears (see vv. 119-120) is imminent, he remains loyal to God’s law.

3 tn Heb “like one who finds great plunder.” See Judg 5:30. The image is that of a victorious warrior who finds a large amount of plunder on the field of battle.
