Psalms 119:72

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

than thousands of pieces of gold and silver.

Psalms 119:127

119:127 For this reason I love your commands

more than gold, even purest gold.

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

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.
