    Results of Receiving God's Word

    This was the experience which the psalmist gained through a knowledge of God's word. He says:8T 323.2

    “Blessed are they that are upright in way,
    Who walk in the law of Jehovah.
    Blessed are they that keep His testimonies,
    That seek Him with the whole heart....
    O that my ways were established
    To observe Thy statutes!
    Then shall I not be put to shame,
    When I have respect unto all Thy commandments.”
    8T 323.3

    “Wherewith shall a young man cleanse his way?
    By taking heed thereto according to Thy word.”

    Thine ordinances have I set before me.”
    “Thy word have I laid up in my heart,
    That I might not sin against Thee.”

    For they are ever with me.
    I have more understanding than all my teachers;

    Because I have kept Thy precepts....

    Therefore I hate every false way.”
