Psalm 119 extols the virtues and expounds the values of the Word of God to the believer in every experience of life. To accomplish this, the author of the psalm uses all twenty-two letters of the Hebrew alphabet in sections of eight verses each. Every verse in the first octet begins with the letter Aleph (A), the second section with the letter Beth (B), and so on throughout the psalm. Psalm 119 begins with the prologue (verses 13), showing the blessing of the one walking in the Word. The rest of the psalm (verses 4176) is one long prayer to Jehovah, exhibiting the excellence of the Word of God and applying it to numerous needs in the psalmists experience.
